    I3 or more of course. From the two models you listed I would vote for Toshiba. IMHO, Lenovo, Toshiba & Dell are the top reliable brands if you intend to use it for work.

    I3 better than dual core. Both will be ok for standard use, day to day, browsing etc,

    If your using it all day everyday, your better saving up and getting i5 or above as the speed increase is massive.

    Haha, true. It's funny, 12-15 years ago "Pentium" or "Pentium II" were labels that attracted buyers. Today, it's sort of archaic sounding.

    I will be using it for basic things and not any thing which requires powerful processor. Basic things like editing my photographs as I love photography, to code and edit files, web browsing, watching movies and sometimes for games.
