2200u system is better. Not only is the GPU good enough for basic gaming (after you add more memory to it), but it doesnt have a pathetic 768p monitor.

Jeez, how do you guys even all fit on that island? Do you just ship in things from italy?

 

Get the Ryzen laptop, but make sure you can upgrade it with another 4GB stick of memory, the iGPU will run twice as fast with dual channel RAM.

Mostly for it's 1080p screen though.

Go with the HP. Literally because SSD.

 

and as others above said l, if you upgrade with another stick of ram the iGPU will become faster and can run basic games fine.

He literally gives those 2 options, and laptop is more used for web browsing then anything else.
