Hi, recently I have been in the market for a laptop that is for school and gaming and I have found 2 potential laptops. One has an ivy bridge core i7 processor, and the other has an ivy bridge core i5 processor. Now I am aware that integrated graphics usually suck di- I mean aren't that good for gaming but the new hd 4000 graphics seem to fit my needs (I have a VERY high tolerance for lag as I game on an old 2007 iMac lol) but I was just wondering if there was any performance difference between the i7 integrated graphics and the i5 integrated graphics and if so could I compensate by overclocking or would I have to buy the i7?

More aboutcore integrated graphics difference
All mobile Ivy Bridge Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs have the Intel HD 4000 graphic core. You cannot overclock it. It is the same graphic core in all IB CPUs.
actually you can overclock the integrated graphics
though whether its worth it as it will run hotter and may not increase performance by that much is another
