The i3 draws half the power as well, so you'll have a longer battery life.

LOL yea, what tim said. I run my Core i7 iMac at 100% CPU ~20 hours a day for Folding@Home, and the combined CPU usage and fan speeds only knocked the electricity usage up a few dollars over a whole month. The differences between two lower power CPUs under normal usage will be negligible for that.
