I've narrowed my search for a new laptop down to 2 laptops,

Choice 2:

Really, i will use my laptop for burning DVDs, doing a little bit of editing video files and/or having 8 or 9 web pages up at once(never gaming) so my main question, i guess, is how much of a difference is there between the Intel® Pentium Processor T4200 in the £469.99 and the Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo processor T6500 in the £679.99 laptop?
Also, the cheaper one has 3gb of Ram whereas the £679.99 has 3gb but, as i have has explained to me on this brilliant site, W7 32bit wont 'see' over 3-3.5gb of Ram anyway!
Please give me your thoughts...

Ps-on the medion site there are 2 versions of the P8610, one with a 500gb hard drive and a blue ray player for £730 and a 320gb version with the standard dvd r/w for £679.
