I am considering to get this laptop for university. It looks quite powerful and mobile.

I want to do lots of multitasking (i.e. 10+ tabs open in Chrome, iTunes running, MSN, Microsoft Word.) Will a i3 suffice? Or should I upgrade to the i5 which will probably cost me a pretty penny.

Also I'm thinking about upgrading the ram but doing this myself because i hear i can just buy more ram cheaper from retailers.

Also how's the Intel HD3000 video card? ATM, Canada doesn't have the other video card(i forgot which one they were offering).
