Will getting a faster CPU and more RAM make development on localhost faster? I use Aquia Dev Desktop, I also use Xamp for Wordpress and other platforms.
Now I have a 5 year old laptop, with 6 gigs of RAM, Intel B950 and SSD.
I plan on upgrading to i5 7200u with 12 Gigs or RAM and SSD.
I also do quite a bit of Photoshop and Illustrator, but no video games ever. I like to have multiple tabs open and lots of applications simultaneously.
Thing is the old laptop has great battery, 6 cell and new....
Will I see an improvement in productivity and speed of work , what are you experiences on upgrading hardware for workflow?
