Hi i would like to buy a laptop as i am a stock broker and need the BEST performance laptop that i can get. I want to purchase one with a Intel Core I7-820qm 1.73ghz CPU but as the ghz is lower, would it be slower than a Intel Core 2 Duo CPU with a ghz of 2.26. Im not sure which one would be the faster one. The I7 is new but the Core 2 Duo has a higher ghz.

Please help me out on this one

Thank you greatly

At Intel's page if you google that cpu, it shows its benefits, its a quad core VS a dual core and the main feature is Turbo boost!
1.73 GHz, up to 3.06 with turbo boost

It literally is twice as fast. Just like desktop I7's, this cpu has new architecture and faster memory.
