I like the i5.

It's advantages are easy to find on the web. So I'll keep it simple. Get the i5 when you have a choice.

depends on use..

Hi, i recently bought dell studio i5.. i was confused with the same thing i3 or i5, finally got i5.. i haven't used i3 but i5 processor is gr8, i've tried hd movies on hdmi, high end games like formula 1 2010 etc.. everything runs smooth.. also i5 has the turbo facility option from 2.4 to 2.6 ghz when needed..
