Is there a big difference in performance in both the processors ? Leave the graphics portion and the generations (2nd vs 4th).
Still, Is there a big difference.
Should I but a laptop with that i3 or i5 ?
Are both good at daily tasks and other works.
Mainly I want to ask, if the i3 is really good at:
Video calls, Web Surfing, light autocad, photoshop, and matlab ???

8.Defragmentation of HDD's once 2 Weeks

The i3 should do all that but slower than the i5. And it will struggle more than the i5 in gaming.

But then again, so will a gt520m

Will 4GB RAM and Fast SSD do the trick ?

4gb ram is now too small.

SSD will only help Windows load quicker.
