Is a core i5 laptop any good ?

We can all agree that an Intel Core i5 powered laptop performs very well when in comes to business use, Intel periodically refreshes their processors to acquaint greater performance, images, better battery life, and plenty more. Intel has really improved the core i5 CPU’s over the years and the latest 12th Generation i5 processor which has just been released produces unprecedented performance.

Choosing the right HP core i5 laptop (Things to consider):

  • Generation of the processor: Intel Core i5 processors have different generations (year of manufacture) each having different specifications such as clock speed or cache memory. If you want a good hp core i5 PC at a cheap price, a 10th generation will do just fine. 10th generation models like the HP 250 G7 Core i5 and the HP 250 G8 Core i5 are some of the best options you can get at a great value. If you want a faster core i5 CPU, go for the 11th generation models, like the 14-inch 11th Generation i5 HP Pavilion X360 or this HP Envy X360 Core i5
  • Maximum memory: When it comes to memory (RAM), each core i5 processor has a maximum memory limit in which it can take in order to function. Some i5 CPU’s can allow up to 128GB of memory, while some only up to 12GB. Always make sure to check this specification in case you might want to upgrade the RAM of your hp laptop in the future.
  • The number of cores: The number of CPU cores varies for each i5 processor. More CPU cores indicate higher performance and vice versa. Most hp i5 PC’s come with 4-cores, which is decent enough for daily use and some light gaming. If you want more cores, maybe because your workflow depends on it, we advise you to consider an i7 computer instead of an i5, like this i7 12th Generation Lenovo Yoga with an outstanding 12-core CPU.
