Lenovo Ideapad Slim 3:
  • Ryzen 5500u with Vega 7 Onboard graphics
  • 8GB RAM (4GB x 2)
  • 256GB SSD
  • 15.6" FHD Display
or

Lenovo V15
  • Athlon Gold 3150 CPU
  • 20GB RAM (4GB + 16GB)
  • 512GB SSD
  • 15.6" Display
Straightforward question, which one is better for productivity, video editing, schoolwork and rendering?

Lenovo Ideapad Slim 3, this has 6 cores and the other only has 2 so it's a clear giveaway. Also strange how the second laptop has a stick of 4gb and 16gb?
Have a read youself: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+Athlon+Gold+3150U&id=3777 https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Ryzen-5-5500U-Processor-Benchmarks-and-Specs.510988.0.html
I was also initially boggled by the ram amount on the v15, but after finding out that the Ryzen 5500u is a new-release ryzen 5 mobile apu with 6 cores I knew it was the clear winner. I just made this post as a form of reassurance just in case, since in my local online retailer they both cost almost identical

as for the ram part, I wouldn't know, but thats what it's stated lol
