Pentium B960 or i3-3110M

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.

  1. Best answer
    The i3-3110M uses HD 4000 graphics while the B960 uses the HD graphics(no 2000 or 3000).
    Go with the i3 it will be more future proof and has a bit more horsepower included with Intel Hyper-Threading Technology.
