I know, this might not be the right place to ask this question, but I’m gonna do it anyways.
I am going to University (I am from Switzerland, so no Idea where that would be in any other education system ^^) next year and I need a new laptop for that, as my old one from 2012 is getting really slow with its HDD, 3th gen i5-U processor. Plus, I want something smaller and with more battery power than my 15’ 2-4h oldtimer. At first, I thought of getting a surface, but the ports turned me off, so I came to the Eve V. But now, just as it is getting released, Intel comes forth and throws quadcores into Ultrabooks. Now I’m just asking myself if I should still get the V or if I will regret that decision in the future, when multithreaded applications are getting more and more common. I was planning to spend a bit more money (the I7 1Tb option), and then have a fast device for the next five or so years.
What do you guys think? Is it worth, buying a dualcore, if I could buy a similar device from HP or Dell for example with a quad for about the same price? I have a fairly decent Desktop at home, so I don’t need all the power, but it would be nice to be able to play a few light games on the go and so on.
