Hello,

I am a blogger and planning to buy a new laptop. I use the laptop for heavy multitasking with 15-20 chrome tabs, 5-6 Mozilla tabs and few basic excel sheets open all the time. I won't be saving a lot on the disk and even the 256 GB that I am getting with the i5 will be half empty. Also, battery life would be a critical factor for me.

I am confused about what would be a better option for me given that I am getting an i5 8250U laptop at a price only slightly lower as compared to i7 8550U.

I feel SSD will help me switch quickly between the applications without much of a lag. Also, i5 with SSD might give me better battery life. But I am not very sure about it.

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
