The Asus ZenBook 14 UM425UAZ-KI023T is probably what you are looking for, apart maybe a Framework. It has a fast CPU (R7 5700U), enough RAM (16GB), SSD, Windows 10 (although I am pretty sure it will work better with Linux, most laptops do, and forget about Windows 11, AMD processors work better with Windows 10 and Linux, Windows 11 is just for Alder Lake) and under €800 where I live.

  • Thanks for your reply @Irsu85 based on what you've send me I did some searching for a higher amount of mine and found this one currys.co.uk/products/… what do you think? Mar 29, 2022 at 13:48
  • Not a fan. Dell customer support is REALLY BAD (source: LTT secret shopper) and it is outside of the budget. Dell is also known for not giving a good upgrade path.
