Trying to Decide between 2 CPU/RAM configs
I am trying to decide between two Dell Inspiron laptop computers. Assuming all other attributes are the same (e.g., graphics card, display, laptop model), which of the following hardware configuration provides better performance (e.g., speed, stability, response)?
Option 1: Intel 4th Gen Core i5-4210U with 12 GB RAM (DDR3L)
Option 2: Intel 4th Gen Core i7-4510U with 8 GB RAM (DDR3L)
Also, I will be using the laptop computer for 50% general purposes (Web Browsing, YouTube, MS Word, graphics heavy Powerpoint), 30% Photoshopping, 20% audio recording/editing. No real gaming.
Thanks in advance for any input.
