I have used to buy highest specs for the last 6 years , for example when first core i cpu was introduced in laptops , I got i7 with 8 gb ram and 1 TB laptop , then when I decided to change my first generation core i7 laptop and buying 7th generation i7 one ( yeah it has been working for almost 7 years perfectly with me ) , I got my HP Elitebook x360 powered with 7600 vpro cpu , 16 GB DDR4 ram and 512 SSD with LTE module and finger print security !
this cost me 2600 to get I can get the i5 , 8gb ram ,256 ssd without LTE module for 1600 ( about 1000$ less ) , also when I bought new mobile I want to try the Oneplus 5 I got the 8GB ram version ( and seriously I don’t know if there is real difference in performance for the extra 2 GB ram added or not ! ) .
So my question is how can I determine which configuration should I pick up for me , many people when I talk with them before buying any new device tell me get specs as much as you can pay !!! , but it has been always costing me alot of $$$ to get this highest specs ,
and my daily use for laptop can be summarized in 3 points :
1- Reading , writing and taking notes on go !
2- Browsing internet ( I may keep 15 or 20 tabs opened )
3- Watching movies and youtube !
this time when I buy the V device I want to make sure that the configuration I will choose to be best optimized for my purposes ,
