Is there really any difference between these besides a little clock speed? With Apple updating the tech specs (http://www.apple.com/imac/specs.html) of the Core i3 3.2GHz to not include Turbo Boost, that make it seem that that is the only advantage of the Core i5 over the Core i3...

I am looking at the 27" Core i3 machine but wondering if the Core i5 would make a lot of real-world difference. I realize the quad-core Core i5 would be much better than either dual-core, but money is also a consideration...

I am pretty sure the Core i3 would be much improved over my 2.66GHz C2D.
