in short: i5 is around +33% faster than i3.

according to amazon i5 is 200% the price of the i3… so i really wonder if this is worth it.

(the benchmark was from hardinfo, a quick one)

less seconds per benchmark = faster

i3

Processor : 4x Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-4010U CPU @ 1.70GHz
Memory : 3554MB (135MB used)
