Hi all,

since not all programs are written for four or eight cores I was wondering, what will be faster for most applications that exist today. I don't do games \ video editing \ rendering \ 3D drawing.

What is use a lot is Office / Nero / IE / Chrome / Teamviewer / Scan software. I multi task a lot.

What would be faster? And i7 or an i5?
