i5s are not 4 actual cores like i7s, they are 2+2's.

What is "affordable" to you?

Just posted this in your other thread, but I'll post it again
i5's are dual cores with two threads each. 2+2

Hm.. the only "affordable" Samsung laptop I know of has a very, VERY slow AMD processor. It's also probably not quad core, though. Maybe eBay has something?
