Here are the specs for both: http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=36503 http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=46472&code=I3-530
Apartr form teh CPU it will depend on teh price, RAM and graphics. The i3 is the new technology. it is all up to preference and price, you shouldn't have any problems doing what you wnat with either one.
The price for both computers is the same. And those specs I had already found on the internet, but, of course, they mean nothing to me. The one thing that meant anything at all, was nano technology, but then how can I know what would be preferable the smaller or larger size.....
So I guess I might as well buy the one in the shop closer to where I live...
