  1. Best answer
    So, the funny part here is that the 2020m is actually better performing than the i3-3217U and uses less power, even though the systems with it are cheaper.

    Go with either the G500 or G700
  2. 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. :)
