    As the title says, which one would be ideal for editting RAW images in Lightroom?

    Basically, 2.8 Quad Core i5 vs. 2.9 Quad Core i7. Also, the specs of the computer would have 8GB ram and a 1TB drive.

    You would be fine with the i5 if PS Lightroom is the most intensive thing you will be doing. I run LR3 on my iMac 2ghz c2d with 2gb ram and it works very smoothly.
