One of the two listed above. The top one performs better, the bottom one is for The gorgeous screen.

i3 even not having turbo boost (or hyper threading) it's much better tecnology than the Core 2 Duo... with C2D you would get just an old technology from benninng.. .doens't sound (it's my opinion) very intelligent buy for that little difference of prices :)

Besides, the C2D are refurbished , so better new don't you think? :)


I wanna buy a refurbished but an i5 quadcore :) or i7 .. which are better technology than i3... so I risk and invest on refurbished machines but for getting a better technology (with more future) :)

I would choose i3 , as Moneyman says :D ... or the one with the 27'' inch display if you want a bigger screen :)
