Yes, go with 16GB RAM, because both integrated display graphics also use that same RAM, and with more RAM less mass storage (slow) virtual memory and less read/write with mass storage, and more apps can co-operate with more RAM and can handle bigger and more files and app data more quickly.

If you had one laptop with Ryzen 5 7530U and 8 GB RAM, and another laptop with Ryzen 7 5700U with 16 GB RAM, everything else between the 2 laptops is the same, which would you choose? Oh, and the laptop will be used for entry-level IT types of online classes, online meetings, possible video editing, internet browsing, movie streaming, and maybe some gaming.

Go with 7530U, but there is not much difference between the two.

Since there is not much difference in CPU go for more RAM? 16GB ram is double of 8 GB ram, it's simple math really.

Of course: Absolutely, I think Samsung should incorporate the impressive Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2 into their mid-range models like the A54. This could position it as the top mid-range smartphone for 2023. I'm hopeful that Samsung will utilize this processor in their forthcoming S23 Fan Edition, ideally pricing it more affordably while retaining the A54's features. I'd certainly buy one without a second thought. Thanks.
