What do you guys think will be better for non-gaming LAPTOP?



i3 Ivy or i5 Sandy? (I know an i5 Ivy is better, but I'm asking strictly these two processors)

Depends on what this non gaming laptop will be doing.

If you use:
Programs that are highly multi-threaded.
High demand of CPU power

Get an i5.

If nothing you do meets those requirements, get the i3.
