    Also......

    US$300 on the Intel side would only get me a Celeron-powered laptop. I think a Ryzen 5-powered laptop at the same price is a no-brainer. So, AMD is moving the bottom end forward. I like that too.

    Btw, my 17" HP Pavilion is having checksum errors on boot up, but still continues to boot to Win 10, could this be a case of weak CMOS battery?

    Possible. Does the date change?

    Yup. Looking at the other brands in Wal-Mart, those having equivalent i5 CPUs and similar features/components put them around US$500 and higher. This one cost less than the Lenovo 11.6" laptop I got for my kid (dualcore Celeron with HT, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 1366x768).

    I questioned the quality of the Ryzen 5 Motile-branded laptops. But, so far, the YouTube reviews have been very positive, esp for the price.

    I'll probably stick with my old ASUS G46VW (i5-3230m, GTX 660m) because it's designed for gaming. The silent dual cooling fans and efficient venting keep temperatures below 68C at the worst case (playing Fallout 4 or Doom 2016, low settings).

    I'm still tempted though.

    The motile 14 cost me $390 after taxes and fees, but it still is value at around P20k.

    Will check later, I do recall that I had a notebook back then where the date resets to 2000, now I have to look at YouTube on how to replace the battery, there's a tutorial there that shows how to replace the HDD, I hope when it's open, the battery will be accessible. Just worried that there are plenty of cables that need to be detached.

    Let us know how it is, esp how it stands up to wear and tear over time.

    Ok, meanwhile my current HP battery just conked out and the CMOS batt might also be on the way since the date already changes. Just found out on YouTube that I don't need to unhook the electronic straps since the batt access is at the bottom lid
