I'm wanting to replace my Vaio Pro i7 4500U laptop with either a Surface Laptop or a Dell XPS 13
My preference is the Surface because I personally think it looks better but my one hesitation is it's running an old processor. The 8th Gen has been shown to have greater processing power. And since my work requires me to work in large Excel spreadsheets, this is fairly important to me.
So my question - is there much of a difference between the 4th & 7th gen processors. And if the difference is small, is it worth going for the Dell instead to get that processing boost?
The Dell is now more expensive as well since the Surface has been put on sale.
I was originally planning to wait for the surface to update with the 8th gen i7, but my Vaio is showing signs it might stop working shortly...
