If you’re getting a new laptop to use for electronic presentations consider getting an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). Advanced Micro Devices‘ 64-bit microprocessor uses a graphics processing unit integrated with the CPU.

The AMD Ryzen APUs may function faster than some of Intel’s top processors, and are a cost effective option. However they may not function well with Nvidia discrete graphics cards that are separately installed. Unless your laptop has memory dedicated to video, its performance will be limited by the system RAM.

AMD's Ryzen 4000 'Renoir' APUs were released for system developers this summer, and may be a significant improvement over the previous Picasso APUs.
