Are you planning to buy a new laptop for gaming or every day task or multimedia work? Do check the suffix of the Intel process model number, generation and suffix before you place order. Why? Let me explain what i have got in my research so far.
At the end of post find the list of suffix used in Intel processor for I3, I5, I7 and they have generation details too. Currently 8th generation processor is coming and 7th generation processor based laptop on sale in Amazon.in and flipkart.
Laptops powered by i3-7167U does not provide the performance of powered by i3-7100H. i3-7167U is a 7th generation processor but ultra low voltage processor. it used mainly on most laptops. Most laptop on sale in Amazon and flipkart are powered by Ultra low voltage processor.
I highly recommend you to check the processor variant before you buy a new laptop during flipkart big billion days offer and amazon great indian sale offers.
