hi guys,
i am planning to buy a new lap = most probably DELL.. :blink:

i not a big gamer but will prefer the graphics options they provide...

my real confusion is whether to go with core i3-370m or core i5-460m ...dell provides only these...???? :)

they are saying that core i5 will use only 1066Mhz of RAM instead of going with 1333mhz of ddr3 RAM while core i3 does

only adv i see is clock speed and turbo boost which reach up to 2.8ghz sometimes....definitely using more power :wacko:

is cock speed really matters ???? core i3 can give up to 2.53Ghz...considering alongwith ATI 1GB graphics??? :)

please help .... and also suggestions are welcome :) :)

I never go back on my words.....BELIEVE IT !!!

It's Core i5 460M (2.53ghz). All the basic details are on the page. More details are in 'Details'.

i5 is a dual or quad core but both with 4 processing threads
i3 is a dual core, with hyperthreading on some models but no turbo

With a higher GHz processor will be faster because the processor can read information more quickly.
