I've decided that I want to get a new gaming laptop after having a laptop that had a dual core Skylake processor that was not powerful enough for some of the tasks that I want to do. I am trying to find a laptop with a 9th gen Intel Core i7 H series processor but some are either too expensive or don't offer the storage that I want. I looked at laptops with 8th gen Intel Core processors and they were hundreds of dollars cheaper. I feel tempted to buy the laptops with 8th gen CPUs but I feel like I could be missing out on better performance. Would it be a better idea to save up for a laptop with a 9th gen CPU or are the 8th gen CPUs good enough?
