I just bought a new MSI laptop. (Love it so far!) It is the 2nd generation Intel Core i5, it's a i5-2410m to be exact. It has the new Intel HD 3000 GPU built into the chip.
I am trying to convice myself and my father that I made the better choice getting the new i5-2410m instead of a core i5-480 or similiar.
I can't seem to find much in the way of comparision's between the two. (hopefully) How much better is the 2nd generation compared to the first?
And MSI's website isn't very technical...(link
I am not sure if this is LED lit, or CCFL. I'm also not sure if this is 5400rpm or 7200rpm. And lastly, is the HDD using Sata 6gb/s or Sata 3gb/s? (Sata III or Sata II)
