Worth sacrificing ~30% of sRGB accuracy for twice the ram and 2 more cores?

Hi,

I'm looking for a new school laptop (already have a desktop PC) and I'm between the IdeaPad 5 14 with AMD (R7 4700U, 16gb RAM, 512gb SSD, Fingerprint, 14" IPS with 65% sRGB) and Asus ZenBook 14 with AMD (R5 4500U, 8GB ram, 512gb SSD, W Hello, 14" 92% sRGB IPS).

The Lenovo costs about €700, the Asus about €800. There is a config of the Asus that comes with R7 and 16gb ram (for about €1000), but it's eternally sold out/unavailable.

 

The Lenovo is cheaper, but has shittier touchpad and screen, doesn't have the fancy pants numpad and just 1 USB-C port. On the other hand the spare parts for Asus don't look as common and it has just 1 M.2 connector.

My use case is currently light coding and office, but might change in the future.

 

I also considered buying the lenovo and importing 100% sRGB screen from regions where it's available and swapping it into my machine.

 

Does anyone have any of those and could maybe share their experience ?

 

Thanks!

The Zenbook is asus premiun businees laptop which means it come with more features then the homeuse intent of the ideapad. So the Zennbokk is a higher ovrall quaallity laptop. for school the ideapad will do everything you need, but if you really want then the next gen off asus zenbooks is launching anytime now, and it will probably drive down the cost of the last gen zenbook you want to buy. But I would the ideapad, and if you want a laptop with better a better scream then the asus vivobooks have nice screans and they are the equvilant to the ideapad in quality and price

The Zenbook looks the most appealing atm, I also found the HP Envy 360 13 that's got a a better screen than the Zenbook.

What about HP Envy x360 13 with R5 4500U and 8GB RAM? It could double down as a tablet which would be bonkers.
