Long gone are the days when Intel used to dominate the CPU market with their high-end processors. These days, AMD Ryzen processors are becoming more popular since they are cheaper and offer much better performance, especially in core intensive applications. The AMD Ryzen processors are built for versatile use – be it gaming, office work, entertainment, creative work app development or anything else you may want to do with it. The AMD Ryzen 5500U is a great laptop processor which enables systems to work efficiently and get more things done in less time. Incidentally, AMD processors can also detect malware, meaning your laptop is kept safe from its roots. So, if you’re looking to switch from Intel, here are some laptops with an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U processor.
HP 14 Laptop
Even as AMD Ryzen based laptops go, this one is quite a bang for your buck. It sports a full HD 14-inch screen in a reasonably compact casing. The screen resolution is great for watching multimedia content or for getting things done at work. You can speed through tasks and work efficiently with the help of the 6 core AMD Ryzen 5 5500U processor. The processor is designed to help core hungry processes such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premier, iMovie, AutoCAD, Solidworks and all of the latest high-end apps perform well. The CPU is assisted by 8GB of RAM for efficient multitasking. You also get 512GB of SSD storage, which keeps things responsive.
ASUS VivoBook Ultra K14 (2021)
If you’re looking for a business laptop with performance akin to an Intel Core i5 processor, then the Asus VivoBook Ultra K14 is a pretty good bet. It sports a thin and lightweight design and a 14-inch near-bezel less screen, which reduces the device’s footprint. The laptop keeps your data secure not just with help from the AMD Ryzen 5 processor but also with the fingerprint scanner, which is tactfully located on the touchpad. Keeping data safe is one thing, but storing it is another- and that’s managed by the fast 512GB NVMe SSD, which pulls up the desktop, files and folders in a jiffy. The 8GB of RAM ensures the laptop doesn’t lag even when running multiple intensive applications. Incidentally, Asus has also confirmed Windows 11 support for the laptop.
Acer Aspire 5
Here’s a rather versatile laptop, in the sense that it can handle day to day tasks, surf the web, check emails and view content, while also having the ability to handle professional tasks, no matter what they may be. This is mostly thanks to the Ryzen 5 processor, along with the full-size 15.6-inch screen that’s vibrant and dynamic enough to make things pop and is sure to increase your productivity. The large chassis also means more room for cooling the CPU, which is especially helpful in a Ryzen laptop – in turn, it will help the system last longer than its smaller counterparts. When running multiple applications, browser tabs, or background processes, the 8GB of RAM will come in handy- and you can upgrade the RAM size too. The laptop has 512GB of storage and comes with a good set of modern I/O options.
Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 5
This slim 15.6-inch laptop sports a Ryzen 5 processor that helps with some of the smart features on the laptop. These features include an eye care mode blue light filter, a smart microphone and Lenovo Aware, which keeps a check on your posture, distance to screen and helps you maintain healthy working habits. The laptop is more than that, though – the CPU is backed by 8GB of RAM to keep things snappy, along with 512GB of SSD storage, which makes up for the lack of storage in terms of speed and performance. The laptop is a great entertainment powerhouse, too – it packs in top firing speakers which are rich and add to visual experiences on the laptop. The laptop further includes a great keyboard which integrates a number pad too.
