I am about to purchase a dell laptop with AMD Phenom(TM) II Quad-Core Mobile Processor N930. When I asked which is the equivalent intel processor the reply was i5. Please suggest me if its comparable to the latest processors released by intel or not.

I'd suppose in processes that are designed for multithreading, the AMD would have the edge - it has 4 physical cores , for processes that need more power for a single thread, the intel may have the edge - especially since it can overclock individual cores - its dual core with hyperthreading.
