CPUs are always changing, always improving. In fact, to stay competitive chip makers have to continue horning their skills and improving their products. Intel constantly stays on top by bringing new tech to the market.

We all have a desire to get the best of the best computers out there.  However, every computer user eventually comes to the realization that the computer they bought is either not powerful enough, or has too much power to be practical for their needs.

If price is not an object, then too much power is not so bad.  I don’t think any computer is truly future proof, but high-end computer stuff is as close as you can get.  My wife wanted to buy me a laptop that housed a Core i3 processor. It was the lowest of the bunch and know I need much more power than that for what I do. But for someone else, a laptop with a Core i3 is a nice budget processor that may meet all their needs.

Picking a computer with an i3, i5, or i7 should be entirely based on your budget and computing needs. A Core i5 processor is a good mid-range point if you great computing power without spending too much money.

For most computing needs, an i7 processor is not a must have. However, it is always good to have a PC can take anything that you throw at it.
