I have an i7 processor at home with an expensive graphic card for gaming. However for work we only need minimum processing power e.g. office apps. Is there a major difference in getting an i3 versus i5 processors for the office.
For the office, you won't see a difference between i3 and i5. Unless the "office" is an architect or the like - and therefore using relatively sophisticated graphics programs. But i3 is still very good, even for an "entry level" processor, and you won't see any any difference when using everyday applications.
When talking processors, I think it's also important to recognize the generation of the processors being compared. An i5 is generally believed to be better than an i3, but that's not always true.
A higher generation i3 may even outperform an i7 in some cases. In recognizing the generation, the first number after the core is generally used. For example an i3-3720 processor would be a 3rd gen.
Hi, i3 processors are generally much slower than i5 processers and coming from an i7 you will notice the difference.
However if you compare an i5 processor with that of an i7 one (if clean hard drives), there is not much of a difference, so it depends on how efficiently or quickly the people in your office will use the machines.
An i7 processor is quicker than an i5 which is quicker than an i3.

Why would someone choose Intel over AMD?I just looked at the computer site 'http://www.newegg.com' and for the Intel latest generation i5 processor (Ivy Bridge) it is $230. This is 3.4GHz, and quad core.Now, on the other hand, on the same site, AMD's 3.6GHz EIGHT CORE processor is currently $190,...

Which ipad should I get? What's the difference?I'm gettting an ipad. I know nothing about them. What's the difference in the off brand and name brand? Can I do hubpages from an ipad? What's the difference between the first ones that came out and the ones now?
