Hey guys,

I'm in the buying stage of a laptop but I'm down to one specification which is stopping me, I've got 2 laptops which are almost identical but one is an i3 and the other an i5.

The difference is £100 which is quite significant, so I want to know from you guys whether that £100 is worth it and if the CPU's performance is significant enough to consider it!!

The CPU's:

It depends on your needs. Gaming and everyday use doesn't need powerful CPU in the above (i.e. i3 is enough because of the price difference). But for CPU oriented tasks, i5 is must.

For surfing the web, and Word processing the i3 is plenty of processor. Editing video will take advantage of the i5. It all depends on your usage scenario, your patience and your budget.
