    Some one was saying to me i5 and i7 is only 30% increase in speed over core 2 dual?

    Is like that with most i5 and i7 ? Or is only some i5 and i7 is going be 2 or 3 times fater than core 2 dual and is it going be very costly?

    PS: There are dual-core i5 and i7 CPUs, there are quad-core i5 and i7 CPUs and some of those even support HyperThreading, but then again, you did not specify what CPU you actually mean and
