I know which one is better, but I wanna know if it would be better to spend the extra $170 for the i3. This is for my sister, so she will only be doing things like itunes and facebook. She does want it to be fast though.

Also, if you can recommend any other laptops that are as good/better then these two, go ahead and list it! Max budget is $400.

It might be better to buy a cheap Pentium/Celeron laptop and then install a SSD for speed. If nothing she does is CPU intensive then she won't notice the slow CPU. SSDs are the best upgrades for cheap laptops with slow 5400RPM HDDs.
