[DUG] Power laptops

If you are wanting something with lots of grunt then AMD is currently king
- Ryzen 7 4800H (or HS) for the highest performance or 4800u for mobility.
I've been looking for something with a 4800U with 16GB Ram for a while,
with no luck.


I've been thinking about a Zenbook 14, but they only seem to be available
with 4700u CPUs (no hyperthreading, although still 8 cores).  Some of the
10th/11th "U" Gen i7's have better single-core performance than the 4800U.
If you are after a beast then a gaming laptop with an R9 4900H might be
your best bet.  Gaming laptops are often quite upgradable in terms of
memory and SSD/NVMe, but usually are quite heavy, with big power bricks.

Something that charges over USB would also be nice, so you can use one of
the new tiny GaN chargers.

Sorry for the late reply.
