I guess they decided that I could still rant!! :D

Anyway... I am an average use laptop user, I run Manjaro Linux, I am not a gamer, and I do not do any CPU intense activities (video editing, programming, etc). I am looking at purchasing a Lenovo X1 Carbon laptop. If I get 16 GB RAM and a 256 - 512 SSD will I notice a difference between a 7th gen i5 or i7 intel and an 8th gen intel processor?

Hey there :)

I've never really paid attention to the various processors.. I don't buy very many computers either though. I have always had an extra from work or 'ole faithful' type pc to use.. I myself don't think you'd notice any difference. They're building these for either gamers or maybe office type intensive users.

Thanks! I think I am getting hung up on duo vs. quad core! When I dig deeper though it doesn't seem as if I would notice much of a difference. I am definitely not a gamer or user that would require so much power. My biggest concern is that I can still have a quick response to what it is I do use!
