I'm looking to buy 40 computers to be used for Adobe Premiere Pro. Budget needs to be kept in mind as we don't have limitless money.

Currently have two specs suggested by our supplier, what are peoples thoughts;

Spec 1:
CPU: Intel Pentium G2020 (Cores: 2, Threads: 2 @ 2.9GHz)
RAM: 2 X 4GB DDR3 1333
SSD: 60GB Kingston SSD
GPU: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6570 2GB

Spec 2:
CPU: Intel Core i5-3450 (Cores: 4, Threads: 4 @ 3.1Ghz)
RAM: 2 X 4GB DDR3 1333
SSD: 60GB Kingston SSD
GPU: Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6570 2GB

The main thing I'm interested in is the CPU and GPU, is the i5 worth it over the Pentium (about a £150 price difference per computer). Is the Graphics Card good enough? It is not on the recommended list by Adobe for Premiere Pro, will that be an issue? Should we pick another that is recommend?

Intel Core i5-3450: http://ark.intel.com...up-to-3_50-GHz)

I would recommend the core i5, Pentiums are not great at high performance tasks. Keep the graphics card as it will be perfect for that, even if it is not on the list. And honestly, I would avoid using such a small ssd, as Windows alone will eat up a third of that space, without applications. Adobe Premeire files eat a lot of space and quickly. If you insist on using the ssd, store only adobe and windows on it. Use a secondary standard 7200 rpm drive to store data, other programs, etc.
