Most say the difference in negligible. When the i7 is maxed out on a task(s) it will kill the battery quicker BUT complete the task quicker than the i5. So there's really not much of a difference.
But I would say to be on the safe side, if you absolutely want the coolest temperature on your MBA, go with the i5.

I have a 13' I7 Ultimate from 2011 15 months old. No extra heat and battery life is a solid 7 hours+ I'm not sure about the new ones though, but I won't be upgrading this one until next year anyway.
Thats Not All Folks
