How much faster is an Intel Core i5 or i7 compared to the Intel Core 2 Duos? In doing everyday tasks like web browsing, making documents and such.

I used to have a Core2Duo T4500 processor 3Ghz, and now use a core i7 2.8Ghz, and the speed difference is enormous. I also bumped my RAM and that really made a difference. The difference between core i5 and i7 is small, you would have to bump it to full speed to notice. So is there a difference? Yes, and you would notice!

In my personal experience, not that noticeable if you're just using your computer normally browsing, watching video etc.. But, once you start gaming or doing any processor intensive computing it becomes very noticeable and overall I'm very satisfied with the Core i7.

They are pretty fast and powerful only depending on what you are doing, if you only do internet and word processing you won't see a difference but if you do games you will see twice the frame rates you would get with a Core2Duo
