I am trying to customize a laptop for my boyfriend and am completely computer illiterate! I don't know if I should get the Core™ i5-3210M processor or Core™ i7-3632QM quad-core processor? He uses the computer for basic everyday use, some schooling, and he likes to study computer programming. Please help!

More about : core 3632qm

What computer programming does he do? Do you know what processor he currently has?

No he doesn't, an i3 can do all of that with ease.

If you are choosing between 2 laptops, what are the rest of the specs of both laptops (RAM or memory, GPU or graphics card and other stuff like that).

16GB RAM, Intel HD graphics 4000 (unless I should get AMD Radeon 1GB?), 1TB hard drive. I am not sure what he has now. All he buys is Sony, so that is what I am customizing, if that helps. He studies SQL and Python, not sure what else.

If he's coding and compiling, a decent CPU could be just what he needs...
