I'm trying to decide between buying a MS Surface Laptop 4 and a Surface Laptop 3.
The SL4 has the following specs:
Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 512GB
Whereas the SL3 comes with:
Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB
Typically, this would be a no-brainer, with the odds firmly in favour of the newer model. My confusion lies in the fact that the SL3 boasts an i7 vs the SL4's i5. Granted, the i5 is the newer generation, but I'm guessing that the i7 previous generation might still trump the newer i5.
I'm not fussed about the Hard-drive size as I don't have a lot of data to store. Moreover, the SL3 also has double the RAM, and that should tilt the decision in its favour further. I think.
Price: they're within $10 of each other (after student discount).
Am I missing something obvious?
Grateful for any advice.
