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. m 0 l 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. m 0 l Related resources Core 2 Duo vs i3 - Forum Core 2 duo vs I3 vs I5 - Forum Old core 2 duo vs I3 540? - Forum Core 2 Duo vs Core i3 - Forum Core 2 Duo v/s Core i3 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
