I am looking for at new laptop for my wife. She saw and liked the HP 14-cf0000no, which costs 5.000 DKK, but would prefer something a bit cheaper. We found the HP 14-cm0004no at 3.500 DKK, which seems like almost the same machine, except that it has a AMD A4-9125 instead of an i5-8250U. She currently has a 7 year old Dell with an i3-2330M that works perfect for her needs, except that it is a bit worn and she would like something a bit smaller. I initially thought that even the slowest 2018 CPU would be faster than her 2011 CPU, but according to userbenchmarks.com, the A4-9120 (which is almost the same as the A4-9125) is actually somewhat slower. So my question is: is the A4-9125 good enough for web-browsing, light photo-editing, Microsoft Word etc. or is it worth it to pay 40% extra to get the i5-8250U?
