i3 370M vs. i3 2310M

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've just come across the i3 2310M processor, clocked at 2.1 GHZ. Is this a mobile/smaller version of the SB processors for desktop? And how does it compare with the i3 370M which is clocked at 2.4 GHZ? Some help will be appreciated. smile.gif

I'll say they'll be around the same performance. The 2310M is a mobile Sandy Bridge processor. It'll perform a bit faster than the 370M, and be quite a bit cooler.

I say go for the Sandy Bridge.

The 2310m benches close to the previous gen i5 @ 2.53. The HD graphics are superior and battery-life is somewhat better. See benches here.

Can you guys help me with something else? I really have no idea about battery life of laptops. If a laptop has a 6-cell (47WHr) Lithium-Ion battery, how long can I expect to work with it in different modes?

It depends on the computer. What kind of CPU? Discrete or integrated graphics? If discrete, is Optimus supported? It depends mostly on hardware components.

according to this page, HP rates it at just over 6 hours. So I would think it would last at least 4 hours in regular use
