I don't know if this can be a silly question. i5 is better than i3, but in terms of performance and what we need, I don't know if it's smart move to i5.
I need to find computers which are suitable to our needs in office.
We need computers to replace our existing old PCs in office. They mostly open and keep all days for following on their desktop;
a Custom software which refreshes 2-3 tables of data from SQL server every 10 seconds.
MS word or excel sometimes
Internet Explorer with 2-5 pages of websites and Google Map.
-Does this mean 4 threads in CPU to run?
-Does having 4 cores instead of 2 cores+2HTs give noticeable difference or i3 will lag much more than I expect?
