We tried the various other offerings but now consider only the i5 and better systems. Nod to the i3 Sandy Bridge unit.
If all you need to low cost without any big performance concerns (video play is fine on both) then why not pocket the savings?
I am in the market for a small notebook computer. I am torn between the HP dm1-4010us with the AMD dual-core processor E-450 and the HP dm1-4050us with the Intel Core i3-2367M processor. Is it worth the extra $140 for the intel processor? Or is there a better alternative around the same pricerange. $450 to $550.
