I have real difficulty choosing between the two.It is obvious which one is better but does it worth the price ?Here are the configurations:

cpu -Intel Core i7-2670QM
gpu -GeForce GT 555M - 2 GB DDR5
ram -6 GB DDR3 1333 MHz

-------------------

cpu -Intel Core i5-2450M
gpu -GeForce GT 555M - 1 GB DDR5
ram -4 GB DDR3 1333 MHz

everything else is the same.I will be using the laptop mainly for gaming and ive read quite alot why and in what occasions i7 is much better than 5, and i know the memory on the gpu is not the most important (though i will be using it from time to time on my big monitor (22"))
Anyway the price difference is 150euros(around 200 $).So which one you think is the better choice ?

with the prospect of games using more cores, I'd get the quad core. when games become more processor intensive, you can always lower your screen rez or lower your gfx settings, but if you max out your cpu, then your framerates will suffer/stutter regardless of your video settings
