Laptop choice based on processor Tags: Laptops Notebooks Processors Last response: July 30, 2012 12:10 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share tyller July 30, 2012 10:33:36 AM Hi, I ponder buying a laptop and insofar I've narrowed down my choices to 2 notebooks. They're similar in price, features etc., the sole difference between them being their processors. Which processor is 'better': Intel Pentium Dual-Core B960 or Intel Core i3 380m? I will mainly use the notebook for office work, so I want the one with a higher battery life. Is the B960 better in terms of battery life?
