No, actually the i3 uses less power [ 17w vs. 35w ]. Even though the i3 has worse single thread performance, it has twice as many threads, so multi-tasking [may] be faster. Passmark says that overall the Pentium is slightly faster though... -- I still say Pentium 2020M, saving you the extra money. -- go with the G500. :)
