Dilemma Between 2 Variants of Asus Vivobook S15


My usage:
- Web development
- Web designing (adobe photoshop, illustrator etc)
- Light gaming (not a priority)

I'm confused between the below 2 laptops (both different price variants of same model):

Specs and other info:
Price: 79k INR (~1140 USD)
Storage: 1TB HDD + 256gb SSD
Processor: i7-8550u
RAM: 16gb
GPU: 2gb Nvidia MX-150

https://paytmmall.com/asus-vivobooks...hild_site_id=6
Specs and other info:
Price: 62k INR (~890 USD)
Storage: 1TB HDD + 256gb SSD
Processor: i5-8250u
RAM: 8gb
GPU: 2gb Nvidia MX-150

Other specs (display, weight) are completely similar in the 2 laptops. The difference between the 2 laptops is the processor (i5 vs i7) and ram memory (8 vs 16gb).
Based on my usage, would it be worth it to spend 18k INR (~250 USD) more for the first one?
In my opinion the ram and processor performance do matter for web designing however i'm not sure how much better is that i7-8550u processor in comparison to i5-8250u. What do you think?

You will not be disappointed even if you get the i5 8th Gen. I am using i3 8th gen on my hackintosh with 8gigs of ram and it is working brilliantly. In that place, you could spend a bit more and get a bigger ssd or add more ram.

Or better still invest in a great mouse that will help you in design work. While most would suggest the latest and the greatest processor, look at how fast things seem to be changing, buying something one step cheaper is actually a good idea. For most part i5 8th gen isnas good as or outperforms the i7 7th gen.
