Re: Can anyone explain Intel Core "i" numbers?
Your best bet is to check out Intel's web page for processor comparisons. It's a great page for finding out the specific differences in all their processors. As far as I know, the only difference between the i3 and i5 is that the i5 includes the Speed Boost technology, which basically means that when your work needs the extra power, it boosts the speed a small amount.
