Both the laptops offer the 45W Ryzen 4000 APU lineup (excluding the 4900H) paired with the Navi-based Radeon RX 5500M and a 1080p 120Hz display. The new Bravo notebooks also support AMD FreeSync to offer a tear-free gaming experience. In terms of storage and memory, you get up to 16GB of 3200MHz DDR4 RAM and a 512GB NVMe SSD. The Bravo 17 also includes a 1TB 7200RPM HDD in addition to the primary SSD for bulk media and large game downloads.
As the name suggests, the Bravo 17 comes with a larger 17″ display while the Bravo 15 features the standard 15″ solution. Surprisingly, the former has two USB C ports while the latter, despite being the larger sibling, includes just one. It tries to make up for it with three standard USB ports, but who really uses those anymore?
The Bravo 15 starts at $929 whereas the 17 has a starting MSRP of $1,099. Although the two laptops have already been listed on Newegg, both are out-of-stock at the moment, with an ETA of 29th April.
