  1. What is that number? Phone? Don't put it here and rub it off quickly as possible.

    The main difference is performance. The Dual core i5-5xx is fastest.
  2. gosh i'm fed up of explaining this!! Its hard for a beginner to understand, so i'll try to make it as simple as possible.

    Core 2 Duo - Older intel architecture, medium to high end 2 core CPUs, made on 45nm. Eg- Core 2 Duo E8400

    Core i3 - Newer architectures, medium range 2 core CPU, with Hyperthreading, and made on 32nm. Eg- Core i3 560

    Pentium Dual core - Low end 2 core CPUs made from anu of the above, by disabling some features, like cache, and lower clock speeds etc. Eg:- E6300 or G6950.


    Generally speaking, "Dual Core" means a 2 core CPU.
    Intel has confused 95% of PC buyers by branding some of their processors "Pentium Dual Core". :)

    AND REMOVE YOUR PHONE NUMBER FROM THIS THREAD AS refillable SAID, USE THE EDIT OPTION ON THE LOWER RIGHT SIDE BELOW YOUR POST :)
  3. and if you want to buy a new comp, get one with the Core i3-2100.
    If its too costly for you, get the Pentium G850 :)
