Customer Question

I have a computer that is about 5 years old. The computer originally had windows 7, but I have upgraded to windows 10. The computer seems to run a little slow and I seem to have some problems booting up. I think its time to get a new computer but I am not sure I should get what's advertised as an i5, i7. Actually, I don't really know what the difference is between i5 and i7. I do know I want a fast computer. I use the computer to run a income tax program and also run QuickBooks. Do you have any advise the computer I need to look for.
