I'm thinking of getting a laptop for both gaming and video editing. I currently am thinking of getting a laptop with either a 7th gen i5 or 8th gen i5. Is there a huge difference in performance between the two generations? Is the 8th gen i5 core worth the extra money?

    That is just my opinion, but I wouldn't advise to do any of these two things on a laptop, no matter how great it is.

    Get a better GPU for the money :)

    I don't know your situation (financial or otherwise) but considering the usecase I'd highly recommend building a desktop.

    Not sure which exact cpus we're talking about but the U line of cpus went from dual to quad core between 7th and 8th gen

    Grab a benchmark of those actual cpus you're about to buy. You can't compare them otherwise.
