    but I think they similar other than Ghz... :confused:

    They are Dual-core and have Turbo Boost & Hyper-Threading.

    Other than the higher i7 clock speed, the main difference is the hyper-threading.

    On an i5, the computer actually SEEs 2 cores that it can give processes to, on an i7, each core has 2 virtual cores, so that threaded applications run better.

    Basically depends on what you'll be doing with it.
