Hi, I need help because I would like to buy one of these notebook for university , I'm a student in computer science and I need it for programming/devoloping so:

Inspiron 15 5000
Processor:Processor Intel® Core™ i7-7500U dual core(4 MB cache, up to 3,5 GHz)
Operating System : Windows 10 Home (64 bit)
Memory: DDR4 single channel 16 GB 2.400 MHz
Hard Drive : 256 SSD
Display: 15.6-inch FHD (1920x1080) IPS Truelife LED-Backlit Display
Graphic Card: AMD Radeon™ R7 M445 with GDDR5 4 GB
Price : 800 €


XPS 15 9560
Processor:Processor Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ quad-core (6 MB cache, up to 3,8 GHz)
Operating System : Windows 10 Home (64 bit)
Memory: DDR4 16 GB 2.400 MHz
Hard Drive : 512 SSD
Display: Display FHD (1.920 x 1.080) 15,6" InfinityEdge
Graphic Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1050 GDDR5 4 GB

Obviusly I know that usually if you pay something much, it will be better but in this case the difference is like 800€ so I would like to know what people more expert than me think about.

I am not a programmer, but a dual core CPU should be fine for compiling code. Sure a laptop with a quad core CPU can compile code faster, but then you have to ask yourself it that speed is worth double the price. Then again the GTX 1050 is a lot more powerful than the R7 M445. If you intend on playing games with high graphic settings then the laptop with the GTX 1050 is the obvious choice.
