How do I know if I have an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor?

Is there a simple way to determine this in Windows?

I can see my processor number in system properties (E5-2620 v0) but the page on Intel's site doesn't say which type it is. Perhaps it's not even i3/i5/i7 ?

How would a user find this out easily?

it's not any core i processor; it's a xeon e5-2620
typically used in servers
if you run system information, the system summary will show you that also in the processor field on the right

Seth, so would a laptop that has an i7 processor in it show in the system properties this or just the number?

for windows 7 users: right click on "computer" icon, select properties. It'll show what type of cpu the system has.
