    Since hyperthreading now comes standard on both i5 and i7 for macbook pros and macbook airs. What are the differences between the two chips besides the clock speed? Thanks in advance!

    If you do video editing the i5 is going to take 10 mins while the i7 does it in 6 minutes

    That's all

    your response implies that I was suggesting I was an advanced user. I'm just curious what makes the chips different beyond hyperthreading, but thanks for proving your lack of comprehension in response to a simple question. also, both links you posted don't discuss the differences besides hyperthreading except for a .1ghz difference in turbo boost. that tells me you don't know the answer yourself and decided to be a smartass.

    i7 has higher maximum clock speed, plus Hyperthreading is enabled for desktop processors (Desktop i5s do not have Hyperthreading AFAIK, but mobiles do).

    Plus the Cache as previously posted.
