    Hi there,

    I am from New Zealand, and on the New Zealand Apple site, for the new iMac's, it states in the tech specs: 3.2GHz Intel Core i3 processor with 4MB level 3 cache; supports Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost

    BUT, on the US iMac tech specs, it says: 3.2GHz Intel Core i3 processor with 4MB level 3 cache; supports Hyper-Threading

    So which is the right one? Cheers

    i5 can handle 1080p HD editing with final cut?

    I always thought that a dual core i5 is an i3 with turboboost. IOW an i3 is an i5 without turboboost.

    Are there any other differences?

    i3 does not support Intel VT-d, TXT or new AES instructors. Will it make a difference for you? No because even I don't know what those things really mean
