    Hi ,
    I need to choose between the Dell XPS 13 9350 which is a i7 6th Gen processor with 16 GB RAM and 512 SSD and a
    Dell XPS 13 9360 which is an i7 8th Gen with 8GB RAM and 256 SSD .
    My main use would be Word , emails and browsing .

    I need to run Windows 7 and am told that processors till 6th Gen only support Windows 7 . Is the true ?

    Also I am told that the Dell XPS 13 9350 has battery life issues - is this true ? Can it be rectified .

    I have looked up refurbished n Ebay and both cost me around $900 so which should I buy for my need.
    Thanks for reading my post . Please advice.

    If you want to get patches for Windows 7 and 8, you'll want to avoid 7th or 8th Gen Intel CPUs. A shame that they've made this decision, but it's not worth running an unpatched OS. I think that should play a major factor if you want to run Windows 7.
