Acer Aspire V5-571P or 572P? Worth the extra for i5 processor?


Oct 25, 2013
Hi, I'm trying to decide whether to pay the extra for an i5 processor in the Acer Aspire V5-572P.
Any advice?
Many thanks.

That is incorrect for mobile Intel CPUs.

All mobile Core i3 and i5 CPUs are dual core CPUs. The primary difference is Core i5 CPUs have Turbo Boost which can automatically increase the clockspeed of the CPU as long as the temps are not too high. Both have Hyper Threading.

The only quad core mobile Intel CPUs are specific models of the Core i7; "MQ", "HQ" and "MX". Mobile Core i7 CPUs without those designations are dual core CPUs.
