Alright, so throughout high school I had a Windows 7 Dell Inspiron something or other. I can't remember the specs because I bought it when I was very young and only knew how to find the cheapest ones. Now I'm starting my first semester of college this fall, and I'm looking for a new one. I'm pretty set on the Sony Vaio S Series, but I need to get someone else's opinion on my setup:
Intel i5-3210 2.5GHZ processor
Windows 8 64 bit
13.3" LED (1600X900) Display
NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M LE (1GB) hybrid graphic
500 GB Hard Drive
8GB DDR3 RAM
The laptop totals to $950.
So my main questions are, should I get the i7 processor instead?
Is the higher resolution and video card worth the extra $80?
Would 4GB of RAM be enough?
