Tuff call. I would say the i5 would win out in all but a few cases like heavy rendering or encoding that could use the extra cores of the 1090.

edit - I dont think you'd notice much of a difference in small workloads like homework or school projects.

I don't think you'd notice much of a difference in anything honestly. The 1090T is a cool CPU, while not quite as powerful in individual core performance as a 2400 (even with it overclocked) its still a neat little toy and worth considering.
