Hello !

I am deciding between 2 laptops. One is HP Spectre x360 13.3" (16GB RAM, i7-8550U, 512GB SSD, 1080p, 1210€) and the other is Dell XPS 13 (8GB RAM, i5-8250U, 256GB SSD, 1080p, 1149€). I can't decide between the beautiful display of XPS 13 and the flexibility of Spectre x360. Also the specs are better on the Spectre. I would use Spectre in tent and tablet mode to watch videos, sometimes take notes in school, maybe sketch something. I don't know if I will need that touchscreen so much.Also the Spectre has 16GB of RAM and XPS 13 only 8GB. I don't think i need more than 256GB SSD and i5-8250U would be enough for me, but I don't know if 8GB is enough. What would you go for ? Would you buy different laptop than these two ?

Thanks in advance :)

8GB should be more than enough if you're going to be watching videos and taking notes in school, 8GB is even fine when gaming.

You only need 16GB if you are going to be gaming while doing heavy multitasking or trying to play unoptimized games (cough cough pubg cough cough).

So 8GB should be fine for you, get the XPS and save yourself some money.
