i3-330m vs ULV SU4100

Hi HUKD'ers, looking at getting a laptop just something pretty basic for portability, and I've seen a few with the above processors, and they all seem to be fairly similarly priced, but I don't know which processor is better. I would have guessed the i3 is, but would want to double check.
Just want to be able to run maybe internet/email, music, film and MSN at once throughout the day so battery life is important.

i3 is better, but the ULV will give better battery life (ultra low voltage).

If you want it for basic stuff and on the move, ULV.

If you don't intend to travel with it too much (ie. >2.5 hours) and are using more intensive apps, i3.

cheers!
how much better would you say the i3 is? because the toshiba has a good battery life stated. As long as the ULV can cope with what I want i dont mind getting it instead.

What model is the Toshiba? Link 2 doesn't work.

I haven't personally used a ULV machine so cannot comment directly, however I would expect it to give greater performance than a netbook, but remain fairly portable with good battery life and should be more than able to cope with office applications, web browsing, music and films (possibly not all at once, but you get the idea).

The i3 will do the lot. It boils down to how intensive your programs will be really.

Might be this one

One of the ones I've been thinking about (that or the Asus UL30a)

i3-330m scores a passmark benchmark score of 1973 and the SU4100 scores only 982

Yeah its this one i was looking at. I seriosly cannot choose between this toshiba, the UL30A too (but want black so prob last choice) or the Acer Aspire 3810TZ Deal
Aspire
It's going to be for uni, and I am going to take my PC for the power

but also I would rather take the less power ULV than have a burning toshiba on my lap lol. I think i found the site where you got the benchmarks from, seems nearly as high as a mates AMD Turion RM72 laptop, which runs stuff quite fine for what I wanna do. i3 is probably too overkill for the basics I want to use it for but the price is tempting !

the benchamarks are taken from here: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php
Ive used several i3 laptops at work (IT Support) and have to say they dont run very hot at all.

i would always go for more spec than what you need if the price is right so the laptop will be a good spec for longer, I bought my laptop 4 years ago for £1200 and its still going strong, the only reason i am replacing it is a 15" is way to big and heavy for my needs now. otherwise i would keep it for another 2 or 3 years.
