Hi

I am planning on getting a new laptop the DELL Inspiron N5110.

I have two options and was confused whether I should get the i5 or the i7.

OPTION 1: Price 165USD less then OPTION 2
i5 2nd Gen 2.4Ghz
4GB RAM
500GB HDD
NVIDIA GT525M

OPTION 2: PRICE 165USD more then OPTION 1
i7 2nd Gen 2.0Ghz
6GB RAM
640GB HDD
NIVIDIA GT525M

I will use the system for watching movies (1080p on external display), using internet mostly facebook, watching videos on youtube etc, Using microsoft office word and excel regularly and power point every once in a while.

So which option would be better for my use.

I suspect that the core i5 would do fine.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

Based on your list of things you'll be using it for, either of those machines has more power than you need. You could easily get by with a Core i3 or AMD Fusion system.
