Just a quick pointer, I would stay clear of the 'U' series processor, or at least take into consideration that its only really 1/2 of a true i7. You can get i5's that will blow an i7-u out of the water.

​Hi does this apply to all Intel Core I series processors?

The U series are only dual core regardless if its i3/i5/i7. Gone are the days where you could safely assume i7 > i5 > i3. Just keep in mind some i5/i7 are quad core and some are dual core (denoted by U).I3/Pentiums are all dual core.

I hope this makes some sense! :)

The U references CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) processors. These are designed more with power consumption in mind than performance.

​To be fair, most laptops use dual cores because the quad core alternative throttles too much due to the extra cores under heavy load. Also quad cores cost only a little less than twice the price of a dual core to manufacture, so it's not worth the hassle for Laptop vendors.

do any laptops actually use non U version CPUs though? I guess they'd be fairly power hungry
#9
Yes many do, but you will find (in general terms) they are larger and more expensive. As mentioned before, the U processor is designed for longer battery life and by extension lower raw performance. They tend to be used in more portable units say 15 inch and below. Larger 'desktop replacement' type laptops will generally have a better processor. Gaming laptops too.

A lot of generalisations here so there are exceptions.

Hope this helps.

Anyone able to suggest a good deal on a non U version or i7 laptop but not one that is for gaming but rather for multi-window office work and may be some video editing?

A U version should be fine for multi-window office work with this kind of spec. You'd probably want a non-U if you were after a gaming laptop.
