I am confused between 2 models of sony vaio e series...help!

I am confused between VPCEA36FG(let's refer it as A) and VPCEB36FG(and this as B)!!
The main difference is that A has i5 core, 14 inch screen(WXGA: 1366X768), and being smaller it has a smaller keyboard with no numeric keypad!
where as B has i3 core,15.5 inch, full HD(1920X1080)!
so i am really getting confused!
Is there a major difference between i3 and i5??
Also A costs Rs.6,000/- more i.e. around $135.
Money is not the main issue..i want the better of the two.
Please give your suggestions.

135 is not much for the differences.

I see why one would choose one over the other. Look at the USERS.

The Full HD but i3 would be great for those that want to watch videos, etc.

The other unit with the better CPU might attract a programmer or office worker.

For programing I want the i5.

This is not an offer to duplicate web pages on why. Just to share my choice.
