Went with Ryzen Laptop

Well I ended up going with a Laptop instead of a desktop.  Found out that the new Ryzen 7 4000 series chips are truly desktop class in terms of performance, and the cost for a gaming laptop was actually very similar to what I'd have spent for a desktop.

Got a Ryzen 7 4800H with a RTX2060

Geekbench 5 scores puts me faster than a 3600X, but not quite to a 3700X.  I can run all 8 cores at 4.1Ghz for 10 minutes before it settles down to about 3.8Ghz sustained indefinitely.

Laptop is only about 4lbs for a 15.6" and temps don't go above 82F.

AMD deserves more credit than they are getting for these new laptop chips!
