It seems like there are still a lot of mixed reviews in this forum about the SP4. I actually bought one when they first came out - I got the i5 256 gb model, but sold it after having issues with short battery life and graphic driver crashes. I purchased a 2016 MacBook M7 which is Apple's maxed out Skylake version. I really like my MacBook but feel it still lacks the power I would like and I miss having a touchscreen. I think the base SP4 is a great value but I'm concerned if the 4 GB or ram is too little? I basically use it for productivity, email, surfing, movies, streaming services and occasional gaming (old games and some current at lowest settings). Would the base SP4 be more than adequate vs. the 8 GB model? Would the base unit beat out the latest maxed out MacBook (m7 512 GB w/8 gb ram)? Are there too many ongoing issues with the SP4 to hold off on a new purchase? I really appreciate any honest feedback.
