Reasons to consider the
Intel Core i5 2400

Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.1 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 70% higher clock speed
Much higher GPU clock speed 850 MHz vs 400 MHz Around 2.2x higher GPU clock speed
Significantly better turbo clock speed 1,100 MHz vs 900 MHz More than 20% better turbo clock speed
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.54 GHz vs 1.8 GHz More than 95% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
