Hi João, The differences between the two are extremely small. If someone was asking to upgrade from an i7-4810MQ to the i7-4910MQ, I would say it's not worth it at all. However, buying outright, the differences will help with your specific tasks in mind, but whether I can justify that by the pricing difference is another thing. I would say if you can find a machine with the i7-4910MQ for the same price as the i7-4810MQ, go for it. Even if it's $50 more, I'd say go for it. But, if the price difference is more than that, I'd avoid it and wait for Broadwell replacements. These refreshes simply add 100 MHz to the core clock and a little more cache. While that might be nice, it isn't worth the extra money. To put it simpler; $100 may be the difference between the two, but you won't get $100 worth of performance difference with the newer chip. Regards, Dylan
CPUBoss for video editing and photography porpuses would the 4910 be much better than the 4810?
$300 for 100 MHz and 2 MB more level 3 cache? I would say no.
The laptop resellers all want about $300 more for the 4910 versus the 3810. Not sure the 2Mb difference in L3 cache is worth it. Other comments appreciated.
