I am looking to buy a laptop for some minor video editing. Which chip will serve best with a budget of $1100?
The Core 2 Duo, the i3 or i5?
I like the i5 because is has the Intel boost technology.3 Will that help when it comes to video editing tasks?
The i5 is the superior processor--especially if its a quad core version. Video editing is quite CPU intensive.. so i would get the best processor you can. You can probably even get some i7s in that price range.
The i3 is very similar to the Core 2 Duo.. it generally should just have some superior power usage/performance. Depending on which C2D model some of the high end ones are as good as an i3.
