Today the world is walking on core i5 laptops. They are high speed mean machine, well built and easy to handle. The Core i5 is now powering performance laptops for those customers who have the capability to shell out a little extra. Since they are made on Intel’s cutting-edge 32-nanometer manufacturing process, it readily outperforms the older Core 2 Duo, giving much more satisfaction to tech-savvy customers.

Four of the biggest brands have already launched the core i5 laptops together namely HP, SONY, TOSHIBA and DELL. Apple recently has joined the bandwagon and is going to launch core i5 laptops. Apple’s focus though is different, more stress is given on removing backlogs which are created by other brands.

Below there is detailed information about the HP, SONY, DELL and TOSHIBA laptops

  1. Sony VAIO’S Core i5 Laptop: This laptop is not only light (only 4.4 lbs) and measures only 1.2” thick, it is durable and powerful also. The Sony VAIOs boasts of super high performance features, including an Intel core i5 processor with Turbo boost Technology, Intel HD Graphics for outstanding visuals, a back-lit keyboard and Intel Wireless Display technology, which allows you to wirelessly stream online media, videos, photos and more from the laptop to your HDTV. It also has Windows 7 Home Premium preloaded.
  2. HP Core i5 laptops: These 14-inch HP DV4-2170 laptops are available for only $649 with the same Core i5 processor, 4GB of memory, a 320GB hard disk drive, and Windows Home Premium 64-bit. Staples lists the system at a regular price of $809.98 with $110 of ‘instant savings’ and a $50 rebate, which brings the price to $649
  3. Toshiba Satellite L500-ST5507 Core i5 Laptop: The 15.6-inch Toshiba L500-ST5507 is the first Satellite L500/L505 series laptop to feature the Intel Core i5 CPU. Besides the Core i5-430M that integrates dual CPU cores and the GMA HD graphics processor, the L500-ST5507 includes a 1366×768 display, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 320GB hard drive, a DVD burner, and Windows 7 OS.
  4. Dell’s Core i5 Based Inpiron 17: Dell’s Inspiron 17 laptop is designed as a low cost desktop replacement option. With the recent announcement of the Intel Core i5 laptop processors, Dell has decided to offer a new version of the laptop with the new processor but with pretty much the same existing external design as the previous model. The price of the laptop does increase a bit with the new processor to slightly over $1000. With more and more speedy Core i laptops coming out of the woodwork, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to buy an older Core 2 Duo system.
