Nooooo, don't stay away from Dell, include all brands! Anyway this website gives a bit of info on the various letter suffixes that intel uses on their cpus. http://www.velocitymicro.com/blog/desktop-vs-mobile-processors-whats-difference/

Basically the HQ variants are more powerful than their U counterparts and a i7-U in desktop terms is more like an i3 lol. Basically, if you think you need or would like the better processing power then go for the HQ otherwise save and get the U. Btw HQ has nothing to do with hyperthreading technology, those technologies depend on the cpu type (i3, i5, i7) and not if it was for a laptop/desktop.

Gotchya. Though I thought not all i7s had hyperthreading?
Thanks for the info and the link. I'll check it out now.

I'm not exactly sure if ALL i7's have hyperthreading but it's safe to assume so when you see the cpu is an i7. One thing I was wrong about before though was i3's not having hyperthreading, they actually do, it's just the i5's that don't but they get turbo boost instead. Compared to desktop models however, mobile models aren't as strict when it comes to which cpu has what and it's best to just check the individual cpu to see what it has. Usually if it has only 2 cores then it's likely to be hyperthreaded regardless if it's an i5 or not. This gives a bit of info.
