Intel core 2 duo T9300 vs intel i7

I'm guessing this will be fairly easy for you guys. I simply wants to know what is the most powerful chip between the intel core 2 duo T9300 and the intel I7-720QM ?
(I want to know if this is worth replacing my laptop basically)
Thank you,

  1. I7 more powerful chip is it worth upgrading? That depends what you need the laptop for but an I7 is a waste in a laptop it eats up too much power and can not be utilized to its fullest. For a laptop an I5 will be more then enough for anything you do on a laptop.

    So why dont you tell us what you are using this laptop for?
  2. The i7-720QM is much better than the T9300.

    Here you have an useful benchmark:
  3. Thanks to both of you for your answers.

    What I use it for
    - Spreadsheet processing (Excel)
    - Querying database (Access)
    - Multimedia
    - Internet

    Not playing games with it.

    I'll have a look at the benchmark sheet for sure. I'm a bit of a technology victim; I try to get the most performant component although I don't really need to. :) Yes, Dell and all of the others like me a bit :D
