Core 2 duo vs i3 i5?

Hi

I am planning to purchase a laptop this week.
I am a little confused as to whether or not to shift from the traditional core 2 duo processors to 1 of the iX processors.
I am not much of a gamer and the basic purpose wud be very simple tasks such as browsing the net, using MS office, listening to music and other such common jobs.

I would be really grateful if you could help me on this (also keeping the cost in mind !!).

    Get the least expensive in your pricerange.

    Also, this will help comparing CPU models:

    With your tasks though, you will not notice much, if any performance difference when spending money between a core 2 duo, or any dual core icore processor.
  2. I agree... probably the i3 is cheaper and should be (in theory) more power conservative than the C2D-that would give you more running time on your laptop.
