Is there a noticeable difference between the i5-7200u compared to the i7-7500u?

Dell are offering a full refund on my late 2015 highly problematic xps 9350 ( i7-6500u, 8gb, non-touch).

I've looked around at other laptops in the same price range but I'll just end up being dissapointed in terms of how aesthetically pleasing I find the xps 13.

I know the i5-7200u with non-touch will yield the best battery life, but is the performance increase from the dual core i5 to the dual core i7 enough to warrant the extra £100?

Depends what you will use the laptop for, if you are heavy gaming then you will opt for the i7 but you cant go wrong with the i5
Probably not, it is just a clock speed bump - Intel Specs Here
