Details:This model is powered by a 32 nm, 64-bit Intel Mobile Core i5 "Sandy Bridge" (I5-2415M) processor which includes two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip. Each core has a dedicated 256k level 2 cache, shares 3 MB of level 3 cache, and has an integrated memory controller (dual channel).
