Hi everyone. With the nest 12th gen boards available, I’m considering upgrading my 4th gen i7 1165g7 for a 12 gen model.
My use case is very light. I don’t particularly need the fastest CPU or GPU. A “Lower” powered machine with better battery life is what I need.
Despite this, the i5 models would have shipped too late. I was forced to get the i7 model if I wanted to use the machine for school.
Now with the 12gen boards out, I’m considering swapping mine with the newer model, but which to choose.
Conventional wisdom would indicate that the lower-powered i5 would have better battery life, but according to this review i5 vs i7 in 2022 - The Difference Will SHOCK You! - YouTube
The battery life of the i7 seems superior while providing better performance( provided the chips have similar power limits.)
Can a Framework Engineer or someone knowledgeable help me choose the right configuration?
