Tough choice, an Asus Vivobook with a Ryzen 5 4500U and a better screen or an Acer Swift 3 with Ryzen 7 4700U with a worse screen. Both within $20 of each other, same RAM at 8GB, the Acer has a larger SSD(256GB vs 512GB), while the Acer has an integrated GPU, the Asus has a comparable discrete GPU. I've not has fantastic luck with Acer over the years, but usually have pretty good luck with Asus. The Asus also just looks better and lacks the chin of the Acer.
