I want to purchase a new laptop and the new units with a Ryzen CPU really look enticing; however, trying to get one with the right combo and a high end CPU is proving challenging. I've come across several units that might fit my bill; however, none are with the right combination. They have one that offers a Ryzen 3 2200u only 8 Gb of ram and a very slow 1T 5400 HD. I'm fairly sure that upgrading the Ram and the HD should be an easy do/change out with a 1T SSD (which I already have) but it would be ideal if I could upgrade my CPU to a Ryzen 2700u, or even a 2500u. I'm pretty sure that the Ryzen 3 just won't cut the mustard when it comes to gaming.


I might mention that I build desktops all the time, not just for my own enjoyment; but, for family members and friends. My present systems (I won't list all of them) are an i7-6700K and a Ryzen 1300X that's sitting on a high end MB, acting as a placeholder for a future CPU upgrade.
