    How big is speed difference between these CPUs?

    I'm about to buy a laptop, currently looking at 2 versions of same laptop. The only difference is CPU.

    Laptop 1 has this CPU: 3317U (i5, 1.7GHz)
    Laptop 2 has this CPU: 3517U (i7, 1.9GHz)

    Is there any major difference between i5 and i7 CPUs other than speed? Is it worth spending extra 70 euro on second laptop?
    Skinning a bear should aggro every bears in a 40 yard radius. It makes sense, you are actually skinning their best friend.

    1MiB more cache on the i7, it turboes further.
    No, it's not worth it.

    If your first prio is raiding 25mans in WoW or doing some other large scale combat in MMORPG's and you want highest possible FPS get the second one. Otherwise it's not worth the extra money.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    About 3-5% difference.
