Say a 2.4 ghz i7 vs a 2.8 ghz i5.


I know in desktops its pretty negligible.

Yes, pretty sure there are no mobile quad core i5s.

Depends on the model of the processor, some i7 laptop processors are only 2 cores with HT, exactly like the I5s. Others are 4 cores.

Ok the specific i5 is a Intel Core i5 4200H


Is it any good?

It's pretty good.

Not as good as an equal clocked i7Q, but it should do pretty much any standard tasks with ease.
