i5-2540M 2.6 Ghz or i7-2630QM 2.0Ghz

Thread Starter 
Hello.

I am on the verge of buying a Dell xps.
but i struggle to find out wich cpu that will be the best.
i5-2540M 2.6 Ghz or i7-2630QM 2.0Ghz, there is only a slight difference in cost.
but i need a larger battery if i go for the i7 so the total extra costs is about 170-200 $ for the i7.
wich would you guys recommend?

I personally would go with the i5 only because I don't see the need for a quad core in a laptop. But that is just me. You are also getting an extra 600mhz out of the i5 also.
