Hi,

The title says it all really, I am looking for the lowest priced laptop featuring an i5 8300h or equivalent really (ryzen 5 laptops, the few that exist).

Thanks.

The lowest priced laptop I can find with the i5-8300h is the following Asus for $699. It has a GTX 1050 and 1TB SSHD (nowhere as close to the speed of a SSD).

The least expensive laptop with a Ryzen 5 is the following HP for $650. It has a 256 PCIe NVMe SSD. It relies on integrated graphics though; the Vega 8 which is general close to the nVidia 940mx. The GTX 1050 is more powerful than the GTX 965m, but less powerful than the GTX 970m. So if you are looking to play games then the GTX 1050 would be significantly more powerful than Vega 8.

Best Buy has an Acer AN515-53-55G9 8300H with the GTX 1050 Ti graphics adapter and 256-GB SSD for $730. I am probably buying it this week.

Do you know where that deal is? I've heard about it but I can't find any info on the Best Buy website. It still shows up as $799 for me.
