    Well it's that time again where college freshman are starting to buy their new computers. I have come down to the Macbook Pro 15in but I have the choice between the i5 or the i7 processor. Which one should I get? Also please list the reasons why.

    i7 as the name says is bigger and faster than the i5. But also more expensive

    Thats what i thought. I wanted to make sure because it could be one of those things when the lower number is faster than the higher one.

    Well I would have gotten the i5, since I wouldn't notice the difference between the i7 and i5 and it's cheaper. But if you have enough money, get the i7.
