I am getting ready to purchase 4 or 5 laptops for my school and I find several with different processors of which I know nothing about. How do these processors compare and which would be bestfor the money: AMD Athlon II P320, Intel Pentium P6100, Intel core i3-370m Processor, and Intel Core i5-460M Processor?

Between those i5 460M is the fastest choice.However,since the only difference between i3 370m and i5 460M is that the later is 100MHz faster and has turbo, if the price difference is less than $100,go with i5 460M otherwise,go with i3.

+^ would go i3 on this instance, im sure there is a significant pricing between the 2. What are the main programs that will be run on these laptops?

Yeah, it is important to know what the intended purpose of the laptops.

Generally, I would recommend the i3 CPU as well.
