I am looking to purchase a very basic laptop as I start seminary. I will be using this strictly for Logos and doing assignments/writing papers. Given my budget I am going with 128gb SSD and 8gb RAM, but I am having a difficult time settling on a processor. Was hoping you all might be able to give me some input.
The cheapest processor I am looking at is AMD A10 9600P. For $60 more I can go with AMD A12 9720P or Intel I5 7200U. For an additional $90 ($150 more than A10) I can go with Intel I7 7500U. Also I should note that with AMD processor the RAM is DDR4 at 1866MHz, while with Intel processor the substitute to DDR4 that runs at 2133MHz. Not sure how much real world difference that will make?
I want Logos to run smoothly so I don't want to skimp out on the processor, but at the same point in time I am trying to be budget conscious. Any insight our thoughts you could give me on the cost/performance of the above processors would be appreciated. Thank you all in advance
