    Choosing the new laptop I'm interested into the Envy X360 and Elitebook 735 G5 using the Ryzen 5 2500U CPU.

    I can hardly find any reviews, there is any actual user that can share his experience about construction quality and battery life.

    Avoid Ryzen laptops. They have significantly worse battery life than Intel laptops and you can only get graphics driver updates directly from the OEM and not AMD, meaning you'll be left high and dry because most OEMs don't provide driver updates for more than one year after the laptop has been released. They've also been known to crash too due to buggy software/firmware. If you need the extra graphical performance, buy a laptop with an MX150.
