Hi im looking to make the switch from PC to Mac but before I do i'd like to know if im better of getting the Macbook Pro i5 or i7? Difference?

I will only be using it for browsing, some Word documents and possibly music and movies but very minimal. Is it really worth the extra money or is the i5 perfect for my needs?

  • Only get the i7 if you are going to do graphic intensive stuff, if you intend to browse the web and only use a couple of programs at a time then get the i5. You will see very marginal differences in performance unless you really push it.
