I have to buy a 2in1 laptop for a college student and HP Envy x360 looks good from capability and budgets perspective.

Any anyone tell me which one is better.
I tried running the SiSoft Sandra overall performance benchmark and both were close.

Both are the exact same laptops but with different hardware.

The 2nd one with Intel i7 is superior and has double storage, however the 1st one with AMD R5 has far better integrated graphics. Almost 200% performance.

So, if you'll be using the laptop for graphics intensive apps or casual gaming, get the AMD model.

Yes I am leaning towards the AMD one since the performance gap is not huge between the processor and the dedicated GPU always helps.

Sorry to be pedantic but if they have different hardware then they can't be the exact same laptops. :hihi:
