Wallmart may have the cheapest Ryzen laptop around with “MOTILE Performance Laptop”, a 14″ laptop powered by AMD Ryzen 3 3200U dual-core/quad-thread processor, coupled with 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. Price? $209 shipped to the US.
MOTILE Performance Laptop (M141-RG) specifications:
- SoC – AMD Ryzen 3 3200U dual-core/quad-thread processor @ 2.6GHz / 3.5GHz (Max boost clock) with Radeon Vega 3 Graphics @ 1200 MHz; 15W TDP

The laptop comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit pre-installed, and ships with a power adapter and user manual. One downside is the use of single-channel memory that can reduce the performance of graphics and other applications susceptible to memory bandwidth.
Performance-wise Ryzen 3 3200U processor is slightly faster than a 10W Pentium J5005 Gemini Lake processor, but the Radeon 3 GPU will be about twice as fast as an Intel UHD 605 graphics found in Gemini Lake processors.
Since the MOTILE laptop will be hard to find outside of the US, I tried to look on Aliexpress for others Ryzen 3 3200U laptops, but no luck so far. There ‘s a similar HP model available on eBay for $240 plus shipping.
