I recently had to buy a laptop for my friend, so naturally I embarked on an ambitious adventure in the local laptop market. Nothing delights me more than walking the aisles of laptop markets in search of the one I would love. As fun as it was for me, it was also quite hectic. A funny event that I remember and would like to share is a discussion that occurred between a stubborn salesperson and myself.
In most cases, a lousy salesperson would normally give in to the customer if they appear to possess superior knowledge about the product, but this impossible and headstrong salesperson was willing to rip me off to the end. Although his deceptive methods had little influence on me, I had a lot of fun rummaging through his brain.
The argument basically came about on the subject of whether Intel Core i7-4500U is a better processor than Intel Core i7-4700QM. His side of the argument was that they are both pretty much the same. That is clearly not true. In fact, the difference between the two is not subtle, quite the opposite. I think most of you will be quick to point out the best here. If so, you are well informed; however, for those who cannot, there is unfortunately a high chance that you would have been fooled by deception had you been in my position.
Below is the list of the best 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors for laptops. At the bottom of the list, you will clearly see who won the discussion.
Coming to number 5 It is the Intel Core i7-4702MQ. With the base clock speed of 2.2 GHz and the ability to increase its clock speed to 3.2 automatically under heavier loads, this is one of the most powerful processors you can find in laptops. Intel Core i7-4702MQ is a quad core processor that can run 8 threads at a time. The designation MQ has meaning. ‘M’ means mobile and ‘Q’ means quad. However, at a price of $ 378, it is not the best valued processor on the market.
TO Number 4 it’s the 4700MQ and yes, this is the processor that was the subject of my little discussion. With base speeds of 2.4 GHz and a boost of 3.4 GHz, this processor is one of the most common high-end Intel processors available on the market right now. Many brands tend to include this processor model in their flagship multimedia laptops. This processor is also priced at $ 378 and is therefore a much better bargain than the one mentioned above. Laptops with this processor range from $ 800 to $ 2000.
TO number 3 is my personal favorite: Intel Core i7-4800MQ. A quad-core processor with a base speed of 2.7 GHz and a boost that takes it to 3.7 GHz. Priced at $ 378 like the previous two mentioned here, this is a processor that offers the best value for money. price. Unfortunately, there is a bit of witchcraft involved in laptops that feature this processor. This processor cannot be found in laptops below the $ 1000 range. In fact, MSI GP60 2OD-072US was the cheapest I could find. Other laptops that house this processor include the HP Envy 15 TouchSmart and Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p.
Now you have arrived Number 2. Let me open the curtains and introduce you to the runner-up, Intel’s crown, the Intel Core i7-4900MQ processor. The thrill of witnessing this processor; however, it would be short-lived if you consider the value for money. At $ 200 more than the previous 3 mentioned here, this processor features just an additional 0.1 GHz and an additional 2 MB of cache. This brings the clock speed of this processor to 2.8-3.8 GHz with 8 MB of cache. Not a good bargain if you ask me.
Now is the time for you to unleash the jewel in your crown, the majesty of Intel. TO number 1 It is the Royal Highness Intel Core i7 4930MX quad-core ‘extreme’ processor. You can’t imagine a better performing processor than this. If your wallet is heavy enough to pay for this behemoth of $ 1,096, then go for it. Yes, you can earn all bragging rights for free. This processor is included in some of the higher quality Lenovo Y510, Alienware and Toshiba Qosmio series notebooks for gaming.
As you can see, the Intel Core i7-4500U isn’t even on the radar. You just can’t compare the Toyota Corolla to the Bugatti Veyron right now, can you? Hope you enjoyed and learned something from this article. Always remember to be an educated customer so that you are not fooled by misleading and misleading information provided by the seller.
