Both systems hardware configured for a total price tag of ~ $1 500.
For that money, I'll get an i5 instead of i7, paired with an HD 5870. How big of difference is the i5 vs i7 in notebooks of this tier?
Please help me weigh out the pros and cons respectively.
Purpose: some gaming (ie. not Crysis on max settings but enough to get by most games with fairly high settings), multimedia (movie and music playback), school work (ranging from email to CAD assignments and the like)
