    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.
  2. Mainly web browsing, movies, music.
  3. i3.

    Heck even a low end AMD APU would do that!
  4. Haha well it's for my brother. We almost had an i5 ivy for $350 today (Dell Outlet) but someone bought it a second before us.

    Thanks amuffin!
