I am buying my wife a new Dell Latitude laptop... She is no gamer. She uses the laptop for Excel, Word, Outlook, surfing, Pandora / Sirius, Netflix, an occasional DVD, and doing photo cropping for picture books she makes.

Can you tell me which processor would be the best for her please?

The 4200U seems to be slower, but runs cooler and uses less power. Would the slower speed be noticeable to her vs the faster 3230M?.

Thanks for your input.
