It depends on your budget, what you're using the laptop for, & what particular models you're looking at.

As far as Tom's Hardware goes, it's Haswell Pentiums --> AMD APUs (except the relatively new Bristol Ridge) --> Skylake/Kaby Lake Pentiums in terms of CPU capability (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/cpu-hierarchy,4312.html). Graphics-wise, it's probably in the same range (with maybe the newer Pentiums tied with the APUs).

If you can, though, a better option for an AMD system would be to get one with a Bristol Ridge APU. They support DDR4 RAM & use Socket AM4.
