Q: I’m looking at 2 computers, both are identical except the processors. One has the i3 3.2. The other has the i5 3.2, but I can tell is just the dual core processor. Whats the difference between the two?

    The i5 is going to be faster. Ghz is a pretty bad indicator of system performance. Honestly it is next to impossible to compare CPU performance by just lookin at the model info.
