There are 2 models I am looking for. One is with core 2 duo processor & the other is with core i3. which one should I go for ?

If you're wanting to purchase a laptop for long battery life and don't plan on doing high-performance functions, the Core 2 Duo SU7300 is a good choice. Otherwise, if you want more power, then the i3 is better with the new Hyper-Threading. But that's only if the price difference isn't that big. sarsoft March 1, 2010 7:01:03 AM List the specs of the two laptops. i3 is a faster cpu. Also list what is the most important thing from most to least important for an example: gaming-hard drive space- battery life-screen size (bigger)-etc. Or anything else that might be useful.
