New Laptop - are these good specs for the money?


Well-known Member
My daughter wants a laptop, she has saved her money and looking at these, im way out of touch for PC/Laptop specs.

it will be mainly light gaming (roblox, maybe some fortnite) , school and internet use.

first up HP Pavilion 15-cs3001na, at £550
first glance this look ok, but its the 1ghz processor speed that's got me thinking its not great overall, it is a quad core 6 thread (what ever that means)
15.6 Inch Full HD Laptop,
Intel Core i5-1035G1,
512 GB SSD,
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (3 GB GDDR5 Dedicated) Graphics,
Window 10 Home

next is HP Pavilion 15-ec1000na, very similar to the above but a ryzen 5 at 3ghz and at £650 the most expensive.
15.6in Ryzen 5 8GB 256GB GTX1050 Gaming Laptop
AMD Ryzen 5 4600H processor.
Hex core processor.
3GHz processor speed with a burst speed of 4GHz.
256GB SSD storage.
Windows 10 Home.

last on the list is ASUS VivoBook M413DA this is at £549
Full HD 14 Inch Laptop
AMD Ryzen 5, 3.7ghz
512 GB SSD,
Windows 10
integrated graphics
Includes reversible USB 3.2 Type-C port

any guidance appreciated
