Well, Ryzen really has advantages in all specs. Plus, it seems like the price policy is more kind than Intel´s. So where´s the problem ? Has anyone tried to buy a laptop with ryzen 4700 ? Sold out, completely. Lenovo Yoga 7 Slim 14 is expected to reach central european stocks in 3 months since now.....Intel versions ? Full stocks.
