    Yes, it is faster. Take a look at these benchmarks. There is no i3-550 but look at the i3-540, it's slightly slower but gives you the idea. However, I would ask if you could pay little more to get the 27" 2.8GHz i5 because it's even faster plus comes with better GPU

    That's a bit of a big stretch In price comparing the two models.

    If you can afford the higher model without pushing your budget, then do it and enjoy your machine :)
