Default Re: Need advice for a programming laptop

The 8565U is marginally better, but most likely not noticeable in real-world. Maybe it'll add a second or 2 (if that..probably more like fractions of a second) to compile times for whatever development environment you're using, particularly at the beginning.

The biggest thing I'd suggest - get a laptop with a good battery. While I was in college for my Computer Science degree, frequently I was married to an outlet with my laptop during classes or working on group projects, because I decided to get a gaming laptop - and while nice to have the extra power on the go...the battery sucked.
Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Google Pixel XL
