Hello,
I'm guessing this will be fairly easy for you guys. I simply wants to know what is the most powerful chip between the intel core 2 duo T9300 and the intel I7-720QM ?
(I want to know if this is worth replacing my laptop basically)
Thank you,
Michel
 
I7 more powerful chip is it worth upgrading? That depends what you need the laptop for but an I7 is a waste in a laptop it eats up too much power and can not be utilized to its fullest. For a laptop an I5 will be more then enough for anything you do on a laptop.

So why dont you tell us what you are using this laptop for?

Thanks to both of you for your answers.

What I use it for
- Spreadsheet processing (Excel)
- Querying database (Access)
- Multimedia
- Internet

Not playing games with it.

I'll have a look at the benchmark sheet for sure. I'm a bit of a technology victim; I try to get the most performant component although I don't really need to. :) Yes, Dell and all of the others like me a bit :D
