Unless there is a major breakthrough from now to then the 4K alone is a dead end.
If you want to watch 4K, get a 4K player. That's much cheaper as well as the usual Amazon Fire TV 4K version.
The complaints about 4K in current laptops explain it all so I won't add more.
If there is not much performance difference between 7th Gen Intel Processor based laptops (which are already in market) and 8th Gen Intel Processor based laptops (which will come in end of 2017) then i will purchase 7th Gen Intel Processor based laptops.
But if there is major performance difference then i will Waite
some where on internet i saw 8th gen may come with circular shape (may be it's just marketing strategy) but in real there is no such drastic performance difference between 7th and 8th gen that i don't know
My requirement is : watching movies (prefer 4k) from internet, Browsing, running Oracle Server
so which one i should choose :
Dual i5-xxxxU or quad i5xxxHQ or dual -7-xxxxU or quad i7-xxxxHQ
Display : prefer 4k if Up-scaling and down-scaling is not a problem with particular model
I don't want to go for Apple, they are too expensive compare to others
