It would help if you say for what do you use your laptops,and what would your budget be,and what country are you located in,cause its not the same market for US and EU.

Lenovo makes good laptops,dell xps series now comes with big ass problems QC wise,and people are complaining on their customer service.

Just choose based on the price and your needs - how much CPU performance you actually need, how "future-proof" do you want it to be and how much the budget allows. Ryzen platform is quite promising (in terms of power consumption, performance and heat output), though since it is relatively new in laptops it is not widely available yet.

 

Other things you can look out for - replaceable battery, SSD and/or RAM (some laptops have RAM soldered, some have 1 "stick" soldered and another one user-accessible, some have only RAM slots). Those three series that I mentioned, I would even consider buying used versions - those things last quite well if you can get hands on a great model, maybe last year's flagship or something.

honestly for that kind of uses you dont need that kind of budget unless you want some overkill stuff.

I have 500 euro laptop,with 16 gb ram,older cpu,and i can even program on this laptop with multiple Visual Studios open,bunch of internet tabs without any kind of problem.

To save some money aswell you can buy some laptop with only 8gb of ram,but that it have extra ram slot and just buy 1 more stick yourself and upgrade it.

You can even replace your ssd inside with bigger size one and save money there aswell

Yeah i am aware of that, 

That is why I was hopping someone already have some results on New AMD CPU, so to say.

Cant decide which CPU will be powerfull and power efficiant.
