    Hello all

    I recently purchased an iPad (no need for debate on its pros and cons) and as a result, hardly use my UMB anymore. I have therefore decided to sell my UMB and TV and replace it with the 27" iMac.

    My father has the old 27" i5 and I notice that now only the i3 and i7 are available. Without going into too much detail, is there a huge difference between them and am I wrong to assume that i3 < i5?

    Many thanks,

    There is i5 as well, it's the stock high-end and it has option for 2.93GHz i7 CPU. Of course i5 is better than i3
