FocusedSlayer I've been having lots of driver issues with Windows 10 , and still working out the bugs with it . Just had an issue where my dvd/cd player stopped working and not showing up in the devices . Come to find out Windows 10 deleted a registry needed for it .

sleepyboy Well the fact it kept freezing til the bios and driver updates wasn't too thrilling. It forever for window's 10 to get setup though that could mainly be hard drive related. So far as I use it Windows 10 doesn't seem that bad. Mainly just use the quick search bar to look for things I would normally use on previous versions, then pin it somewhere. I don't like the plain look of it. I liked 7, seemed more like a natural evolution of Xp to me on gui.

Currently I'm running a Cooler Master TPC 812 - it's a monster, especially once two 120mm fans are mounted on it, it helps having a fair sized case (HAF 932). Next is a custom liquid cooling loop, but that's a few months away, possibly not until the fall.

I have not gone to Win10 yet, it's "too new". Still running Win8.1. Constantly having issues with user's computers at work that are running Win10, especially print driver issues. I hate printers. I want to drag one around a parking lot attached to a truck by a rope, I would pay to see this, especially with a floor model/full-size Xerox.

5400rpm? Oh man, patience isn't the word I would use to describe it;) But Hey, you use what you got, until you get better :)

As for the i5 versus i7, I think the i5 will do everything you need it to. If you're running CPU intensive apps that will use all 8 cores than the i7 will perform better, but for gaming and general use an i5 will net you considerable performance. I currently have an i5 4690K overclocked to 4.3 GHz and it takes everything I throw at it.

sleepyboy I can't see the pic, though I just started using the Dell 7559.

Speaking of I got the Dell 7559 with the i5 today at fry's. It was the last one they had and an open box but never turned on just to show a customer they said, which it seems like. Also talked them down some as well. I was out the door cheaper than I could have gotten it on the internet. I would have gotten the i7 but it literally sold out the night before.

First impressions Windows 10 is horrible, plus I had driver issues, but I knew those were coming. Did a bios update, it had 1.0.1 lol now on 1.5. something. Also had to update the wireless card due to it dropping and or not working at all. Yet another known issue but should be fixed now that I updated it. The hard drive is painfully slow, make my m4400 seem like a beast compared to this one. Now working on getting stuff up to my liking. Going to look around for some SSD's, right working off a 1tb 5400 rpm patience maker.. lol

sleepyboy Yeah, probably going to go with the i5 since I can get that locally for the best deal. I was going to get the i7 but I swear it sold as I was looking at it. I want to go in and haggle for a lower price if I can. Fry's had the i7 for 999.99 but Newegg has it for 879.00. I know newegg would match but the i5 is 799.99 heck of a steal, plus it's in stock still, and if i can get a little more off that even better. Plus comparing specs the i5 is more than capable of handling whatever is thrown at it and is only down a few mhz compared to the i7 all other specs are identical besides the lack of hyper-threading which isn't that much of a downfall from what I been reading. The way I look at it, I can always upgrade the processor to a even newer model as they roll out. I threw a T9900 3.0ghz in my Dell M4400. It wasn't even out when this laptop was made but fits cause the same family architecture. Gives me room to upgrade, not much but still upgrade later on down the road for fun. Isn't the best part about doing this stuff is the disassembly then reassembly and it works, always sucks when it doesn't lol

FocusedSlayer I'd go with the Rosewill and upgrade the 2.0 usb to the 3.0 usb .

As far as the I5 vs I7 , not really a big difference and depending on what your using it for . I have a Toshiba Satellite with a I3 that almost does everything the I5 can do .
