In a 13 inch Macbook Pro (Late 2013), is there a big different between: 2.6GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 and 2.8GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7?

I am considering buying a 13 inch Macbook Pro (late2013). I basically use laptops for the following things:

- Save Pics and videos
- Skype (Video calls)
- Office (Powerpoint, Word and Excel)
- Itunes
- Internet (Youtube, Facebook and etc.)

I want might consider doing some picture and video editing at some point

Is there a big different between:

2.6GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz and 2.8GHz Dual-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz, in terms of performance?
