But the devices follow the same trend that HP and other laptop manufacturers have always done with AMD CPU and APU devices - they immediately place them at a disadvantage of low resolution screens!!
768p on ANY screen size is unacceptable and consumers will not buy it - especially business users!
1080p 2 years ago was more than acceptable, but a produxt released in 2019 which tops out at 1080p is dead out of the box.
Truly sad. AMD, AMD fans and consumers deserve better - much, much better.

@John 1080p is fine on an allround laptop for schoolwork, email, youpron. The AMD Ryzen 7 Pro 2700U with Radeon RX Vega 10 graphics is more than decent. Long batterylife is nice but its not really a dealbreaker. There is a new invention called the wallplug. I took my Zenbook everywhere offroading Africa and its fine. Most people buying a Dell will leave it docked or tethered. If you want a full fledged workstation - they use 500-700w plus nowadays. If not - a phone/phablet is usually a better choice and some can 10h or more and then standby till you get home or to the office. t is not a critical metric.

The vast majority of gamers and businesses use 1080p or below. Your statement is flipped. A laptop with anything higher than 1080p is going to sell waaaaay less because it is targeting a niche market. That's obviously changing, but it will be awhile before 2k or 4k is commonplace.

The sad thing is, most of these Laptops will just sit at a desk docked to a screen, keyboard and mouse, therefore making the screen rez irrelevant.
