Hi,
I have a Dell XPS M1530 with T9300 2.5GHz Core 2 Duo processor and the whole works...
And I was wondering how does that compare to a the new iprocessor (i3,i5,i7) family... better? worse?
any feedback would be greetly appreciated...

Thanks

The Core i5 and i7 processors have Turbo Boost, which allows them to clock a little faster than your Core 2 Duo. All 3 processors also have Hyper Threading, which allows them to handle more tasks than your Core 2 Duo.

I think the i5 and i7 will have better performance in more recent games, but if your system is running fine right now, you shouldn't be worried. :p
