  1. All you get going from one to the other is turbo boost in the i5. both are dual core Hyper Threaded and run 2.4GHz. The i5 just turbo boosts to 3GHz. You don't get much out of that.

    Leave it be.

    Just as jay2tall has suggested, let it be, and don't bother with upgrading. Not a notable difference to make an upgrade necessary.
