Dell 7000 2 in 1 with 2700u processor

Hey gang --

I am looking for a portable (14" or less) laptop for less than $1000 that will work smoothly for photo/video editing. Also, I love Civ V and want to get Civ VI soon. The new AMD 2700u processors intrigue me with the embedded video card that's a step up from Intel's onboard offering. I'm considering the Dell 13 7000 2 in 1 here [].

But then I read this snippy Slickdeals thread which said the 2700u works best with dual-channel memory. This Dell doesn't appear to be dual-channel. So ... are the folks in the prior thread correct? To get decent gaming performance without killing the CPU, do I need dual-channel RAM?

Any educated thoughts and guidance are appreciated in advance!
