Sorry you guys are sick of these type of questions but it is important to me and each comparison is rather unique. which one? consider: - I have the option to get a brand new 2009 i7 for almost exactly the same price as the new i5. - I understand the i5 is now the same speed as the old i7 (does the old i7 still have an advantage here?). - I dont care about SSD for now. - Do the ram clockspeed changes trump the i7 'advantage' (if one exists)? - Graphics cards are basically equal as far as i can tell. thoughts?
