My 4th gen I7 4790K running at 4.0GHz is just as fast as my 8th gen I5 running at the same speed. Both have 16GB RAM and SSD's. You cant tell whitch is whitch unless you check the system info.

No. i9 is just higher than i7, the generation number is still the same, with all the newest ones starting out with 9's.

I wonder if an i9 in a laptop could even outrun an i5 in a desktop of the same generation?  That's the silly thing about all of this, my 7th generation i5 laptop was barely able to get a better passmark cpu score than my 4th generation i5 desktop.  Both are still adequate performers, especially running ssd hard drives and plenty of ram.  I'd take an i9 if someone were handing them out for free, but I wouldn't spend extra for one.

I9 is a newer chipset than I7. 9th generation, I believe, though I may be slightly off on the naming scheme. Reviews say the performance difference between the two is fairly significant, though.

More info on the Processor please: I am assuming I9 is a typo as I3, I5 and I7 are what I am used to seeing. Then there are differences between various I5 processors. I7 is for 3D video games and video editing  and
I5 is more for business PC's like what we do. I have a 8th gen I5 K witch is an unlocked processor that can be ran at any speed I choose.
Currently I am running it at 4.0GHz. I have ran it as high as 4.3GHz.
But without water cooling in this rig I was worried about overheating although I didn't see any.

I3 is for cheap entry level PC's. Dont bother with them.

Hello all.
Looking to purchase a new dell laptop computer. Here are the specs:
I9 processor
16 GB ram
256 GB SSD
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060

I would like this computer to last me about six years. Are all of these specs acceptable for running JFW? Is there anything else that I should make certain a new laptop has for JFW use?
Appreciate any advise.

Thank you-

Don't forget about a usb keyboard just in case your laptop doesn't have a full keyboard layout semular to a desktop system would but also check to see if the ram could be upgraded to 64gb ram of course.  Remember you still have to allow jaws to have a significant amount of ram to run in the background while other processes are going on.
