  1. Yes is the short answer nearly 100% of the time
  2. Compare them here:
    (Forget the prices, the place made a mistake)

    The i5 is a 3.3GHz Quad vs the i7 which is a 3.06GHz Quad. The only reason the i7 could be better is in situations where there are many processes doing low-power tasks, where the 8-threads (vs the i5's 4 threads) could be better.

    Get the i5.
