The upgrade is worth 60$ at best.
haha yeah, you are mostly right except its more like it started as an i76500U and got renamed to i5-6200U. It's a common practice called "binning" that most chip makers use. When they manufacture the i7 CPU, a percentage of the chips don't come out perfect and dont perform up to specification. So they sort them out by performance. Top performing chips get put in a "bin" and sold as i7 and lower performing ones get put in a different "bin" and sold as i5 and so on.
Intel got tired, so they just renamed i5-6200U and called it i7-6500U and wanted money so added 1M cache for over 100$ more.
lol
Same thing!
