Hello, im on a budget and dont know which one would be better? I need it for basic web browsing and Microsoft Word but I also load a lot of pics. Im trying to decide between Intel Core i3-370M processor and Intel Pentium processor T4500? Can someone who knows about computers advise me please.

Definitely the i3 - good for many other things you might need down the road as well.

I would go with the i3 since it is the more recent version and will process files and pictures more qiuckly and web browsing will be snappier.

Both will do OK with what you plan: basic web browsing, MS Office programs and managing pictures.
The i3-370M has a nice boost in overall performance.
What is the price difference in the laptops you're looking at? Got make and models for us to compare?
