Acer Aspire 5742 Question?

I want to buy an Acer Aspire 5742 notebook. I’m not really a savvy and I wanted to know more about this notebook. So I’ve looked through many reviews and it seems that the Acer Aspire 5742 is sometimes with an Intel Core i5 and sometimes with an Intel Core i3 like in this review.

I’m not sure which one to buy, sometimes there’s an Acer Aspire 5742 review that says it’s a good budget notebook, and other review says it’s powerful notebook. What do you suggest which one should I buy? Which processor is most suitable for casual use, surfing, mp3′s, movies and stuff?

    I would strongly suggest the Acer Aspire 5742 with an Intel Core i3! It’s much cheaper and it doesn’t heat much! The i5 would be too much for everyday tasks. Of course software will run faster to you, but it’s not much of a difference that you will experience with browsers, communication software, word processors etc. So I say go for the i3. Here is an Acer Aspire 5742 review:

    It is a review about the Acer Aspire 5742 notebook with an Intel Core i3 processor you can read all about it there. Cheers!

    The Core i3 will handle what you want to do with ease, but if you can afford it go for the core i5, this will allow you to do things faster especially if you decide to do any video or photo editing in the future.
