    Hey,

    I was planning to buy this Acer Aspire 7 for school and video editing purposes.

    https://www.laptopshop.be/product/780773/acer-aspire-7-a715-71g-71hs-azerty.html

    (15,6 inch-Intel Core i7-7700HQ-8 GB RAM-NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050)

    When surfing on the internet, I saw that Intel released its 8th generation i7 CPU's.
    New laptops with these CPUs are coming out in september/october/...

    Should I wait 2/3 months, and buy the Medion Erazer P6689 instead?

    http://www.medion.com/de/unternehme...Core_Prozessoren_der_achten_Generation_DE.pdf

    (15,6 inch-Intel Core i7-i7-8550U- 16 GB RAM-NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050)​

    Is it worth the wait because of the processor? School starts in two weeks, and a laptop could be handy..

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Timoriss,

    Core wise. 7th gen has a higher 2800MHz base working frequency with 3800MHz Turbo boost. 8th Gen has a lower base clock speed of 1800MHz and Turbo boost of 4000MHz. Boost is short term. 8th gen on the other hand has much lower power consumption of 15 W vs 7th gen 45 W.

    If I understand correctly, not able to read Belgium. Medion has a max RAM of 32 GB and video card is GeForce GTX 1050? They are very similar but P6689 has a higher capacity storage SDD of 512 GB

    But as I understand they start from the lowest spec and work up to. Depends what the end price will be compared to Acer.

    Hope this helps.

    Travis
