    Basically, 2nd gen is faster and better on battery. Get it unless it's obscenely more expensive than the 1st gen.

    rajuj13, Pitabred has given a simple explanation, generally newer architecture is better. If you want detailed explanations then follow the links. Processor manuals can be downloaded from the links.

    Yes or No answer. Is there a big difference between regular core i7 and Extreme other than the cost?

    Extreme Edition has unlocked multipliers for overclocking on top of a higher TDP power threshold and higher multiple clock frequency. It is only useful if you are an enthusiast (overclocking fanatic) or a CPU powerhouse user. Otherwise, it is not worth the investment.
