core i3 is newer. it is 32 nm meaning it can oc higher, use less energy, and run cooler. they have HT, which means even though they are a dual core, they show up as having 4 threads, and a few other things. basically the i3 is better than most core 2 duos, and definitely cheaper.

yeah, on good air, the i3 can get 4.2 GHz plus easily, where as the core 2 duos might barely be able to go past 3.8 GHz, but it depends on the cpu.
