View Full Version : Refurb 21.5" Core 2 or Refurb 2.15" i3?

There's only about $140 difference, but that pays for a lot of other things.

What would I gain from going to the i3 over the Core 2 Duo?

Are there any other factors such as newer features, better screen etc?

I presume you are comparing the C2d for $1119 vs the $1249 i3?

The i3 is still only dual core IIRC, so the main difference would be the better graphics card in the i3.

They're the ones. Have since found out I can get a brand-new i3 through my company for under $1200. Even though you can get 24" reburbs for this money, the lack of wireless KB and mouse is a showstopper for me.
