Intel i5 vs i7?

whodunnit94

Hi guys. So I know pretty much nothing about computers and their different inner workings. But my new job requires a laptop and have some recommendations. An i7 processor or equivalent At least 3gb of ram

So I've looked at some labeled i7. Seems to be the most expensive. So my question what are some equal alternatives that may be a little less expensive?

  • Total budget and country of purchase: -fill here, remove dashes- * Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications for the money? Pick or include any that apply. U.S , budget is <1000$

    Which OS do you require? Windows, Mac, Chrome OS, Linux. -fill here, remove dashes- * Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A. N/A

    Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run.

The difference between i5 and i7 isn't easily explained in (yes i7 is better or i5 is weaker) with that said , I would recommend this Acer Swift 3

the casing made of brushed aluminum and looks very premium.

It comes with 2 USB type 3 and 1 USB type C.

The keyboard is a chiclet keyboard, typing on it feels spongy, but you get used to it quickly.

Drag and drop sometimes doesn't work as intended, but that is easily fixed with software.

Screen is glossy Full HD IPS, with very good viewing angles, the screen flickers at 200 Hz in a brightness level of 20%. if you have sensitive eyes might find this unpleasant (or you can get a headache if you are really sensitive).

The main (and maybe only) con about this laptop is how dim the screen can get, it is not usable in direct sunlight, and the coverage of colors is average (39% RGB and 61% sRGB).

Has very good heat management, and it doesn't throttle.

Speakers provide very clear sounds, and the maximum volume is pretty loud.

Battery life is very good at around 9-11 hours of usage on light to medium usage.
