And depends on what you intend to use it for.
Gaming? i7 will be faster at max speed.
Also will use battery faster, and run hotter...At Max Speed.

With the power plan set properly, battery life and fan noise
can be controlled.

duck what is i7 good for if u cant use it's maximum capatibilities and performance? just to show off? na then buy mac book pro ;P

well count on that with i7 ur battery wont get over 2 houers of usage!
with i5 procesor and switchable gpu ur laptop can live up to 4 houers 

if u can live with battery life of i7, and u say u need it for webdesing i'd go for i7, if not i5 will do the job aswell Smiley Wink

Have in mind that the i5-460M is a dual core and the i7-740QM is a quadcore... that's 4 cores!

Battery life... I don't have experience with the i5... but i7 is OK.

Fan noise: no much that any computer.

Go for the i7. Rocks!
And in your spare time you can do some gaming Smiley Happy

I'm going to guess that if you're rendering a lot, you'll benefit from quad-cores, for programs like Photoshop.  Not a lot of software applications are optimized for multiple cores yet, but they are getting there.

that was cheap.

in turkiye the price is between 900-1300 $

 

you may need extra performance later so, i7.
