Hi

Looking at getting a new laptop soon and was planning on getting a laptop with a Intel i5-460M processor thought have noticed recently laptops with Intel i7-720QM 1.6GH processor in them that could be just in budget.

Can anyone tell me how much a difference this will make. Apart from this the laptops I've been looking at have a similar spec?

What are you going to be using the laptop for? The Core i7 will only be quicker in certain specific uses where the software can make full use of four cores and eight threads (e.g. HD video encoding). In general the Core i5 will be a better balanced laptop for the price.

The main taxing things I will be using it for is 3D modelling and texturing using 3ds stuido max, though don't think I will be doing any rendering. Also some music production using Reaper.
