Is a laptop i5 8th generation worth it in 2023? My budget is tight ($340), and I want a laptop to do some graphic design, WordPress, programming, etc. Is any laptop in consideration, or should I get a desktop?
While an i5 8th generation laptop can still provide decent performance for tasks like basic graphic design, WordPress, and programming, it may struggle with more resource-intensive tasks. Additionally, a new laptop would likely have better hardware, such as faster storage, higher frequency RAM, and better graphics rendering capabilities. I would recommend looking into newer laptops with an i5 or better processor, such as the HP Pavilion 15 Laptop, which has an i5 11th generation processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD within your budget range. This laptop should be capable of handling your tasks with ease and provide a better user experience than an older i5 8th generation laptop.
