Specs: Mac OS X, Intel Core Processor
I am looking for a good reason for finding preference in buying a Mac with I7 processor instead of I5. What are the benefits of I7 over I5 (do not worry about getting into detail, I like details!)

i7 would be better for photo/3D/video editing, since it would allow the program to run more threads at the same time (better multi-tasking). Other than that, there are almost no advantages of i7 over i5.
i7 is quad-core, but i5 might only be dual-core (not too sure).

Look into also which processors specifically since there are many models including 2 separate generations of i5's and i7's which can make even more of a difference. Some of the 2nd gen i5's may actually be better for you than some of the 1st gen i7's.
If you get the exact model processors then post back or Google for more details on each.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I completely agree with Fingers.

We can not fight new wars with old weapons, let he who desires peace prepare for war - PROPHET.
