Good morning everyone! First and foremost, I apologize for this thread; I'm sure there are a hundred just like mine. I would have just used the search function, but let me put it this way: I'm typing this from my iPhone. Over the EDGE network on one bar. Yeah. Anyhow, I'm torn between the i5 and the i7, and can't decide which to get. I do not do any encoding or music mixing of the sort; this will simply be a luxury machine for gaming, net browsing, and movie watching. Cost isn't really a factor... I just don't know if I will receive any benefit whatsoever for using an i7 over an i5 as games do not utilize hyper threading from what I understand. another factor is if I went with the i5, I can pick that up today from the Apple store for instant gratification, whereas with the i7, it's BTO only. What do you all think?
