I mean in general. Is the i7 quad core and i5 dual core?
Reason I'm asking is I'm in the market for a new laptop. Main uses are for office work, light gaming(TF2 or battle field 3), and some autocad drawings. I will be getting a dedicated video card with at least 1gb memory and plenty of RAM. But I have no clue if getting the i7 would be wasted for my uses?
Thanks for response.
