bump from i5 to i7 for $100 more?
Get a SSD yourself for much cheaper, use it as your main/booting drive.

You might ask about the latency, the fact its the same price makes me think it's either shittier RAM, or the RAM is broken up into smaller pieces (i.e. taking up more slots).

and I see what rage is saying about the cache benefits of the i7, but I still hold it wouldn't be worth it, especially for a mobile machine. but that's my 2 cents
