I think most people on here would say, if you can afford the i5 option, go for it. IIRC, Chronos is a big i5 fan.

I agree with Ian in Northampton, i5 is the one to go for, I bought a new laptop from Novatech almost a year ago complete with i5, it is grrreat!

Its all about what you can afford , But Intel ivy bridge chips will easily outperform there AMD equivalent , but performance costs !
