Either one of these CPU's will be used in a mini-itx build with no gaming intended. This build is pretty much just for word and web surfing. Pretty much building this for reliability, temps, and speed. I cant seem to find much in the way of benchmarks between the two, but wondering which one is faster for normal office work not gaming.

For your need perhaps you should also look at the Intel Pentium G3420

I would but I want a little more future prof. I hope to not be building another computer for this person for a min 5/6 years. So with the added HT maybe it will be used more, who knows?

There is no such thing as "future-proof"

Well technically yes, but between a Pentium to a i3 their is. Sorta like a i5 to i7. Took a i5 4 years before it surpassed the first i7's (i7-920) in all specs.

You need nothing near an i3 OR an A10 to run Word and web browsers. Get a Pentium or an A6, and use the money you save on a small SSD like this one.

I would but then I'd have to explain to the person how to use a computer with 2 different hard drives. It won't go over well. But I agree that would be nice, I just think it would be a nightmare in the long run.

You'll see more performance from a faster processor than you will a SSD when it comes to stuff like that.

True, fair enough :)
