Laptop - Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz T9600 vs Intel Core i7-720QM 1.7GHZ

Which is the better deal when it come to audio recording, mixing, production software on a LapTop?

I ask this being that most audio recording software doesn't really use 4 cores, or can it help when using more plug-ins ???

Is a faster Core 2 Duo better than a slower i7 or is this i7 faster overall because of this Turbo Mode, does this i7-720 even have Turbo mode?

Not so accurate anymore.... Most Audio apps are multithreaded.....
And yes the 720 QuadMobile is has the turbo function....

I haven't used the 720QM extensively... but the 920 at 2GHz smashes a lot of desktop processors and competes with some of the high end desktop CPU's..... So my vote would probably be for the I7 over the C2D

Sounds good.
That is what I was thinking after reading all about it.
i7 it is then. Especially that it does have "Turbo Mode".
Thanks guys.
