  1. It depends on what you are going to do with the computer. By the way, the Core i3 processors are dual core, but they are multithreaded and actually act more like a quad core.
  2. If it's for general office tasks, some web-browsing and listening to music, a Core i3 should do you. If you want to some intensive tasks, then a Core i5.
