Some info on your question...What's the difference between an Intel Core i3, i5 and i7? - PC World Australia


Then there is the price....about $130 vs $300

i3 -> 2 cores, 4 threads, less cache

i5 -> 4 cores, 4 threads, more
i7 -> 4 cores, 8 threads, the most

Thats general difference expecting the price of course. There are some "green" versions with changed attributes.


i3, i7 has no special meaning.
