Please can you advise me as to which of the following 2 is the better Processor Type. Intel Pentium B950 2.2GHz, or Core i3-370M Processor.

IMHO the i3 is the better - i5 or i7 would be better still.

I agree..if you can afford it Core i3 or i5 or i& as Nontek suggests.

This has been asked quite recently the B processor is built for laptops and requires less power gives out less heat.

Sorry, I should have said that they are used in laptops that I have been looking at.

Tony, both processors you mentioned are "mobile" versions designed specifically for laptops and other portable devices.

The Intel i3 is the better of the two and has a faster clock speed as well.
