Intel i7 vs core 2 quad/duo Tags: Laptops Core Intel i7 Quad Product Last response: November 11, 2009 8:23 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share Eazy November 11, 2009 8:09:40 PM Does a laptop really need such an intensive processor (the intel i7) or would the core 2 quad/duo suffice? I don't want to spend the extra money for an intel i7 laptop if the core 2 duo can sufficiently meet my needs. I have 3 laptops in mind atm: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - $1449 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - $1249 OR http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - $1499 Looking to play current games at high settings, btw.
