Whats the difference in quality/performance, etc between a processor number that ends in "OU", "U" or one that has neither letter at the end?
Trying to understand the difference in processors between a Dell Inspiron 13 7000 with a 8th gen. i5 processor 825ou vs. Macbook Air 13 inch with a 5th gen i5 processor that doesn't have any letters after the number. Do PC laptops use a diff type of processor than Apple?

I understand that you are interested in knowing more information about Intel® Processor Numbers and Suffixes. I would like to assist you.
Alpha Suffixes indicate significant features that processors include when you purchase a product. To give you an example, the alpha suffix in Intel® Core™ i5-8250U Processor means Ultra-low power. This is related to Power Management Support for this processor line. This is key information that you can take into account when building a system.
