Is this an Overkill?


I own 2 laptops, one for daily productivity (for work) and the other for Photo/Video Editing, mainly using Lightroom and perhaps switching to Capture One.

The work laptop is starting to hinder my productivity, and Im in the market for a new, slim 13" Ultrabook. Rather than keeping 2 laptops, im thinking of combining both into one, merging a daily productivity with editing capabilities. My projected usage would be:

Daily: Strong multitasking with Chrome and Ms Office, Occasional Presentations

Occasional: Lightroom, Photoshop, Capture One

Rare: Premiere Pro

I came across the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 with the following specs:

1. Intel i7-10710U (6 Cores)


3. 512 GB PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD

4. Intel Iris Plus (G7)

Would these be an overkill? Or would a regular 8th Gen i7 with Intel UHD 620 do the trick just nicely, reason being its almost half the price of the Dell XPS 2-in-1. Im also looking to get one to last me the next few years smoothly.

Greatly appreciate all you tech savvy people out there for your opinion!
