Will the 2.7 GHz Core i7 generate more heat and use more power - i.e. shorten battery time - than the 2.5 GHz Core i5?

Thanks. Price diff is US$190.00. If the performance diff is not that big, I think I'll just save that $190 for something else. Thanks again.
Yeah. The performance difference is barely noticeable. You're pretty much paying the premium for the "best" you can get.
What do you think about i3 vs i5 then? Other than clock speed, I think i3 lacks Turbo Boost. Is that really worth it?
