I should add here that if that i7 processor is less than $100 extra, by all means go for it. But any more than that and it's a pure waste. But based on your use case scenario it's not going to give you a noticeable difference in performance either way.
Take a look at notebookcheck, especially the models they review with both i5 and i7 processors. The i5's usually score better in batterylife and cooling, and in very few cases can even perform faster than the i7's that, on paper, look the part of outperforming them.
My previous surface book was a prime example.

It looks under powered with not enough RAM. Spend the extra money for
a faster processor with at least 16 GB of memory. You will be happy
you did. The question should not be what I minimally need but what
could I optimally benefit from?

This looks fine.

If you can at all afford it, I would recommend making that 2 x 8 gb
ram, especially if you plan on keeping the machine for years to come.

Hi all, I am thinking of getting this computer. I will be using it
for the usual stuff, email, surfing the net, and getting music to
use for my internet radio show. Does this look good enough for this?
I would appreciate your comments. Thanks, Jim
