I'm buying a new laptop to replace my 2017 dinosaur and I'm at the point of deciding between these two processors. What do you think?
I have been using Linux for years and I am still a newbie

For me, processors across the two brands do not offer a lot of difference. I would look at the CPU plus support chip. My recent purchase was Intel Gen 11 with the new support chip as it worked out similar in price to Gen 10 and has USB4 plus, the big thing for my use, faster single thread speed.

Locally, some AMD CPUs are cheaper but the motherboards are more expensive by about the same amount you save on the processor. There is more competition on Intel motherboards and there are more options. I find I can config Intel with more money spare for a better SSD.

Whatever your choose, it will depend on what you want to run. Blender? Doom2? What do you want the speed for?
