What I7 you have.
Tell exactly which ryzen cpu your looking at.
I have a 2016 MBP that I paid about $3500. I've had a lot of gripes with it from the get go, but now... my screen is starting to go out. I've got the stage lighting, and as of today, it's starting to black out completely at times.
Needless to say, I'm DONE with Apple for good. I really need a machine and don't have gobs of money laying around. I don't do any gaming. I do however do a great deal of music production and video editing.
The MBP I have is a 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 from 2016.
I'm looking at some $800-$1200 pc's with an AMD Ryzen 7 Gen 2 processor, all running at 2.3GHz.
Would the performance of such machines be at least on par with my MBP, better or worse?
