  1. turbo boost I believe...
  2. turbo boost, bandwitch, speed, multitasking capacity.

    def the i5 is a better buy if u can afford it.

    i3 3rd gen processors are clocked at 2.4ghz which is same as i5 what about bandwidth can you provide the proof with a specs sheet?
  4. i3: http://ark.intel.com/products/53442/Intel-Core-i3-2370M-Processor-3M-Cache-2_40-GHz

    i5: http://ark.intel.com/products/53450/Intel-Core-i5-2430M-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-3_00-GHz

    Differences, Turbo Boost and AES which are both absent on the i3. rest every thing is same between the two.

    the i3 was launched after the i5 and both cost the same.

    Just no one know what AES is, it is an encryption instruction set which enable fast and secure data encryption and decryption. AES stands for Advanced Encryption Standard. It is very useful if you encrypt the data on your hard drive using AES encryption.

    The AES instruction set basically allows for hardware accelerated encryption and decryption, therefore it is much faster than using software alone. If you do not encrypt the data on your hard drive then AES is not really necessary.

    AES is also used in the WPA2 protocol in wireless modems/routers to encrypt / decrypt data packets. However, AES does not affect the speed at which data is transmitted / received.

    chennai-india but since my uncle lives in u.s.a i have asked him to buy there and bring it to me as he is coming here within a month.does laptops support international warranty?
  9. unshur of that, i think the warranty is covered where u bought the pc originally, but might be wrong
  10. Since your uncle is in the US, maybe the below newegg link might help.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=StoreIM&Depa=3&Category=223
    If your friend is interested in light gaming then do remember, that AMD A series cpu's will be much better than Intel HD graphics solution. HD graphic will however have no problem with HD video playback etc.

    good luck

    does dell and hp offer international warranty?

    i'm having a money difference of nearly 10000 RS (150$) compared to u.s and india.my budget is 30000 in india i could hardly get a lenovo 3rd gen corei3 processor but in u.s.a i could easily get a dell corei5 3rd gen
  16. hmm, well it would be hard to get an international warranty as usually companies such as dell are mostly us canada, id recommand u get asus or msi or companies like that as they have more global warranties im pretty shur.

  22. alot of these laptops for ur price range arent very good. id recommand saving up. since u wont be happy with any of these tbh.
  23. ++1^ that is true. with laptops there is little to none upgrade possibility. what you buy is pretty much what you'll have to stay with for the time that you keep it.
  24. yep, thats why it be worth saving up for something better. none of these are worth what theyre been sold for.
