  1. Most likely the i3, as it has newer technology in regard to both tasks. The Turions in comparison are a bit dated.
  2. Naaaa, dont be sure here. The turion 2 Ultra is a very fast cpu. Expecially in the terms of browsing.....

    The i3 is almost as good, but i would compare it to athlon x2 2,2 Ghz.
  3. Yeah, be sure that the i3 is faster.

    The slowest i3 gets a passmark score of 2059 while the fastest Turion II gets a score of 1643. The i3 is certainly way faster than an Athlon X2 2,2 Ghz.

    You can see for yourself at cpubenchmark.net
  4. the i3 is dual core with multithreading encoded a movie with handbrake in 45 min. not as fast as my athlon 620 but not bad boy I'm glad bestbuy didn't have the 1st laptop I was looking at with a turion this i3 is pretty good for $500
  5. what are the two processors like in terms of heat they give off? (and power efficiency?)

    both of these are important in a laptop.

    I'm looking at the Hp laptops:

    dv6-2111sa (WB413EA) (i3 Processor i3-330M 2.13 GHz, Level 2 cache 3 MB)
    dv6-2113sa (WB329EA) (AMD Turion™ II Ultra Dual-Core Processor M620 2.5 GHz, Level 2 cache 2 MB)

    Both are same price, both have 4 GB RAM
    yet i3 has ddr3 memory, compared to AMD's DDR2

    Which of the two would you recommend?
