I'm finally buying a new laptop after swiping a Black Friday deal for half price 8 years ago. I've recently brushed up on my knowledge of basic computer specs and what capabilities/properties I am willing to settle for in my price range. For $400-$600, I can count on an i3 or i5 cpu, 1.8-2.4 GHZ, but I'm stuck with a 5400 rpm HDD instead of a solid state and a low to mid range GPU. I've waited long enough so I'm going to buy what I can afford. I'm interested in the Samsung q430-jsb1us; I like everything about it incl. the fact that it runs on Windows 7, but it's a 1st generation so no trial and error on that model yet..I have a novice idea of what is good and what isn't, but at half a day of computer recon I'm still just a noob

+1

This is more true on laptops, as the i5 in most laptops is dual core, rather than the quads in desktops.

4th Gen Core i3 is better that 1st gen core i5.. you'll get better performance, better battery performance and better graphics.
