I5 vs i7 help me decide


#1

So tomorrow is the big day, I have an i5 ordered but the guys at Eve have allowed us to upgrade to i7 should we wish.

Is the i7 worth the extra 400 euro?
Concerns:

  • extra battery drain (unfounded?)
  • only really needed for video editing or gaming and I don’t believe gfx card is there for that

Please help me decide :slight_smile:

It’s not a gaming device, it’s not a video editing device. Even with the i7. If you think the 16GB of RAM or 512GB of storage are worth the extra 400 bucks, the i7 upgrade is a nice bonus. If not… Save your money!

I forgot about the extra ram and storage, 400 is a lot extra though, think I’ll stay with the i5


#4

Yeah, it’s not gonna help at all for video editing or gaming. The extra RAM might help, but it’s better to invest in eGPU instead :wink:


#5

think you should stay with the i5. :stuck_out_tongue:
