If you intend to use your laptop for general use such as browsing the web and using word doc and stuff, then pretty much any CPU is decent.

If you plan on doing things like gaming and graphic design etc then do not get a laptop no matter what the CPU is.

Get a PC with a Ryzen processor, Ryzen 5 1600 or Ryzen 7 1700 would be the best, coupled with 16GB 3000MHz+ ram

As with everything it depends on how much you want to spend. AMD have started doing some very good processors now. On par with Intel.

What do you want to use the computer for?

It's the one in the link below. Most of my stuff like Spotify, work and movies etc will be done in a browser and I'll have the odd thing (such as Roblox) that won't be done in the browser.

if you have any other suggestions I'm also open to them. Thanks

Around £350 is all I can afford and pretty much mostly browser activities like music, movies, social media and work. Only gaming would be Roblox to be honest

The specs seem ok for what you want to do with it.

From what I can tell they're not as powerful as an intel, but do better graphics. I have AMD processors on my PC

It is a bit slow but that's probably because it's a 2013 laptop

It is only a company name,
what you should be looking for is CPU benchmark, which use the no. of core, clock speed, and turbo speed as indicator.
Website like Passmark Sofware has a detail list of ranking for all CPU, i hope it helps.

If your mainly a browser user - then I'd go for a Chromebook. Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Chrom.../dp/B01LZ6XKS6 - is what I have - imported for America. (That link should cost around £330)

It has Desktop Chrome and the benefit of android apps support so you can still play Roblox etc. It's macbook quality at a third of the price running a light operating system that will allow you to do everything you need to do.
