I expect to be buying a laptop, mainly for photo editing (but also for occasional video editing, on the go.) Would someone care to comment on the differences / advantages of the current crop of Intel i7 vs i9 ?

Thank you

One thing to consider is that many laptops don't have great CPU cooling systems; the i9 may be faster for short periods of heavy load, but depending on the efficiency of the cooling system have little advantage on sustained loads as it may encounter more thermal throttling.

I'd look for tech reviews that discussed a specific laptop's load performance before buying an i9 over an i7; that's very model-dependent.
