I'm planning on buying a new macbook pro 13inch and I've got the choice between a
2.3ghz intel core i5 or an
2.7ghz intel core i7 for an extra €300 (= $430).
Can someone explain me what the difference is between
i7? Would it be worth it to updgrade (eg will the performance be better)?
I would mainly use the laptop for matlab simulations (and other simple 3D simulations) and data processing. Some of these calculation are highly recursive and take a long time (fractal computation etc) on my current machine.
