    Hey folks,
    I'm thinking of buying a Surface Pro 7 for several reasons. As I want to start getting into photo and video editing I am struggling with the configuration. Obviously 'the more the better' but the i7 with 16GB RAM costs a fortune including cover, pen, etc.
    I have never been editing videos before but am definitely going for it - mostly having Gopro and drone footage (2,7k) and videos+photos of a great travel-pocket-cam (videos mostly in 4k).
    I'm thinking of the i5 version with 8GB RAM.
    Any suggestions or thoughts on my choice?
    Thanks a lot everyone, every opinion will be appreciated!

    Surface Pro 7 is much more stronger with changes made into it this year. Microsoft has placed Intel’s 10th Gen processors inside the Pro 7, and you can pick between a Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 variant. I’ve been using the Surface Pro 6 with an 8th Gen Core i7 over the past year, and I’ve been impressed with its performance. It’s equally impressive here, and the Surface Pro 7 remains silent even during times when I pushed it with some video editing.

    IMHO, I believe you may run into issues with the i5/8 gigs of ram. While the i7/16 gigs of ram will cost a small fortune, I believe it will be the better option based on that you are wanting to use it for.

    Yes, the 16GB version will be expensive. If money is no object for the OP then go for it. I would tend to at least go with a configuration that has 8GB RAM.
