Lenovo’s new IdeaPad 14 laptops  are set to ship in April with a choice of processor families — and two different starting prices.

If you want a model with an AMD Ryzen 4000 series processor, you’ll be able to pick one up for as little as $850. But prices start at $1210 for models with 10th-gen Intel Core “Ice Lake” processors.

Both are thin and light Windows laptops that weigh around 3.3 pounds and measure about 0.6 inches thick. But while the AMD model seems to offer more bang for the buck, there are certainly a few reasons to consider the Intel-powered version.

For example, only the Intel version has a Thunderbolt 3 port. And the AMD version of the laptop  is only available with a metal chassis, while the Intel version is available in metal or with a Slate Grey fabric cover. The Fabric model is also available with a choice of FHD (300-nit) or 4K HDR (500-nit) touchscreen displays. Neither of those options are available with the AMD version of the laptop.

Here are some key specs for each version of the IdeaPad 14, which will be branded as the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 outside of North America:
