What's the AMD equivalent of the i-5 processor?
I intend to buy myself a new computer for Christmas, and I've noticed that the manufacturer I'm definitely going with tends to have more models with AMD processors than Intel ones. I don't dislike AMD processors - my last two computers have had them - but it's not as easy to figure out how "good" they are as the i-3 thru i-7 classifications, and because of this it's harder to compare specs not only between models with AMD and those with Intel, but between 2 or more models with different AMD processors as well.
From what I've read about i-3, i-5, and i-7 processors, the i-5 is what I'm looking for to suit my needs. What are the equivalent AMD processors? Quad-cores, six-cores, something in the Phenom II family?
