    Hi Guys, after thought I am looking to get the SP4, rather than the Sbook for various reasons. The big question now is I5 or I7.

    the I5 has the intel HD 520
    the I7 has the intel Iris 540

    I have looked all over the internet but can find no benchmarks on these two chips. Does anyone have any info?

    Even for the SP3, the I7 benchmarks are all over the place, and it's very hard to tell the normal difference between I5 and i7 when heat comes in.

    For me the 16GB availability would push the i7 ahead, but yes I'm concerned about real world speed difference and whether the i7 in this package will really be up for it.

    To be honest I'm not sure how I could ever warrant 16gb in the pro. I have that in my work horse PC, and I really don't always feel that I need it there, even for larger projects. The I7's extra ommph could be nice though, on the odd time i want to play a indie or arcade game on the move.

    My desktop has 32GB RAM, and I rarely use more than 9GB, and I've never gone over 12GB, so I think 16GB is kinda crazy on a tablet, especially for the price, but that's just me. As for comparisons, I don't have a compare of the i5 vs i7, but I did find a compare of the HD 520 vs the Iris 540, here it is:

    Iris Graphics 540 Mobile compare HD Graphics 520 Mobile GPU
