I'm looking at one on Amazon
new HP Pavilion 15 for $900
i7-1255U 1.2 GHz (up to 4.7GHz)
10 cores, 12 threads, 12MB L3 Cache
15.6” touchscreen 1920x1080
Intel Iris Xe Graphics
Wifi 6
Windows 11 Pro

Right now I have
Dell i7-7600U 2.91 GHz
2 cores, 4 threads

and it's too slow for what I do, even after a fresh reinstall.

Thank you very much.
