ECC is the magic word.
I read these as being pretty similar. My dilemma is figuring out if I pay the extra snatch for the XEON, whether the women on campus will think I'm hot and I can get a payoff from that? What could I say to the women about the XEON that will give me an edge over the guys with an I7? Both are Intel, so I don't think the brand will get me a woman by itself. I just need a little edge to succeed with the ladies that has not happened so far with my MacBook.
