Should I have spent more and get 8350u instead of 7300u?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there, I have been craving affordable full windows tablets and finally made up my mind and purchased a Dell 5285 tablet with i5-7300u CPU, 8GB ram and 256GB SSD, costs me about 340 dollars.

 

Should I have spent 160 dollars more to get the latest Dell 5290 which is equipped with i5-8350u? Am I going to see a massive under performance comparing to the 5290 model? I only use my tablet to browse the internet and watch youtube. Should I have spent 160 dollars more? Is the performance difference huge between 7300u and 8350u on most day to day uses? I do not game on these things nor do I edit anything. Just plain youtube and chrome.

Nah, you’ve already bought the one with the 7300u, it should be just fine for YouTube, although you may want to choose a different browser as chrome is known to eat up ram. (It shouldn’t be a huge deal though)

Yeah should be good. That’s why I said shouldn’t be a huge deal. Although I do recommend Brave Browser as it’s very fast and has a built in adblocker. (It even blocks ads that come before and during YouTube videos.)
