Easy answer is yes it is. The Intel® Core™ i3-380M is a nice little dual core processor that has hyper-threading allowing it to run up to 4 threads at once. Now if you are going to be doing a lot of work on battery you might thing of changing over to the 2nd generaiton Intel Core processors like the Intel Core i3-2310M to get better battery life.

Actually, even a Pentium Dual-Core is enough. An i3 is definitely enough for web surfing.

Actually, I need to run three or four programs simultaneously while browsing the net. Will the i3 380m suffice? One more thing, is the clock-speed enough to serve my purpose? Do I need an i5 processor or i3 is good enough for what I need?
