Re: Laptop, who here has knowledge and experience?

The main difference between the mobile i3 and i5 is the i5 has Turbo Boost. The i3 tops out at whatever its rated speed is, whereas the i5 will cut power to unused cores and raise the speed of the remaining ones. With the current crop of chips, the boost provided is quite a lot depending on the workload. Having said that, the i3 is no slouch.
