Solved Pentium B960 or i3-3110M Tags: Laptops Last response: October 31, 2012 5:37 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share TommyGunDam October 30, 2012 2:53:54 PM I am looking to purchase a laptop and was wondering if the i3-3110M is worth the extra $50. Lenovo IdeaPad (B960) @ BestBuy for $299.99 Acer Aspire (i3-3110M) @ Micro Center for $349.99 I only plan to use it for PowerPoint Presentations (OpenOffice Impress really) but it's always nice to have a bit more "horsepower". I know the Acer comes with a bit larger HDD but I'm planning to install an SSD. Thanks in advance.

Go with the i3 it will be more future proof and has a bit more horsepower included with Intel Hyper-Threading Technology. | Report abuse TommyGunDam October 31, 2012 5:37:12 AM Best answer selected by TommyGunDam. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Laptops & Notebooks>Pentium B960 or i3-3110M> Related ressources: ForumPlaying Minecraft With an Intel Pentium Dual Core B960 ForumIntel Pentium B960 windows 8 ForumNeed advice: AMD A6-3420m or Pentium B960 ?
