      Two reasons for this.
      First, though both i5 and i7 CPUs share the same TDP envelope, the i7 is clocked higher and produces 30+% extra heat compared to the i5.
      Second, the i5 and i7 have the same UHD 620 GPU on-chip, but the i7 iterant is clocked much higher like the CPU cores and achieves 40% higher performance than the i5.
      So, putting the MX150 in the i7 as well would be like signing your own thermal throttle death warrant for no valid reason, since the MX150 and higher clocked 620 are almost on par with one another.

      hhmmm, but MX150 makes the i5 a better buy though than the i7 version.
