My laptop is old and falling apart and I need a new one of equal or better performance, I just use it to surf the web and watch HD videos.

The specs of the one I own now are:

Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-3110m CPU 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz 4.00 GB RAM 64-bit operating system

and the one I'm looking to buy is:

Intel Core i5-4300u Dual Core 1.60ghz 6GB ram 1 TB hd 64-bit OS

Would the one I'm looking to buy play my videos as smoothly as the one I own now? I stream videos online and watch them from my hard drive with VLC media player, I don't play PC games any more intensive than emulators. Please help and thanks in advance.
