Topic - Laptop: i7 or i5?

Mark Torrance on 25 Jan 2013
Two options - computing power will be devoted exclusively to playing games.

i5-3210M Dual Core Processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD

i7-3610QM Quad Core Processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD

Both with 2GB GeForce GT 610M graphics. The i7 could have more RAM added later. In all other respects they are identical (different versions of the same model). I have no need for lots of HD space (unless there is some game-related reason for this - I know nothing about computer games). I realise that these are both low-end for a lot of games. I'm just maximising potential for my son to fritter his life away randomly slaughering things when he should be doing his homework.

The i7 costs 80 more. It's going to be one of these two. I don't want to waste money.

Tell me which to buy.
