Hi guys! I'm going to be selling a laptop online.

 

It's a lenovo with an I3 3110M processor

 

However, when trying to get quotes online, some sites ask whether it's an I3 core or an M core, but since it has both in it's name, im confused and I dont know what to list it as.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, numbering is completely different between Core M and Core i. If it has an i3-3110M it's not Core M:

What model of Lenovo is it?

G580 is a model series that can have various CPU specs, but Core M is Ultra Low Power, and I don't find any indication G580s have anything other than Core i series or Celeron:

If the computer Properties or Device Manager report i3, then it's certainly not going to be Core M.
