Hi all,
I am new here and my knowledge about computer is not that great. I have just bought All-in-one Lenovo IdeaCenter B320 (intel I3, 3.3GHZ 2320). From what I understand the I5 is faster than I3 but how come the processor gigahertz in I5 is lower than the I3 and what does the number 2320, 2400 or 2500 mean? Would replacing I3 with I5 make the computer much faster and what are some of the advantages? I would have bought the B320 I5 in the first place but they don't have this model in my country so I am thinking of buying the I5 processor to replace the I3.
Any comments would be appreciated.
Cheers

Another question is how would I know if I5, I7, or even third generation Processors are compatible with my B320?
