    Given little information, this is what I could find out about the new processors (The link leads to the Intel Product Comparison for what MAY be the CPUs):

    http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=47341,43560,43544,

    Is this assumption correct? If so, it probably makes sense for most applications to get an i5, the i7 just seems to bring 1MB more cache to the table.

    This is what I had in my other thread... I don't think it's really worthed to pay for the i7

    That's right. i7 only adds 1MB cache AFAIK

    I would say it's also quite rare that your processor would go up as high as 3.33GHz unless you do some insane processing and the turbo boost is triggered.

    Well, it will idle in average use anyway, but when performance is needed in e.g. encoding or gaming, it's going to get up to 3.33GHz
