    Second one is much better since it uses an core i5 processor which is newer than the core duo so as there is probably a faster data exchange rate (FSB between cpu, ram and mobo), as well the GT 330m is much more powerful video card that will handle photo editing better than the old 9600GT.

    Definitely take the i5 one. i5 is much faster than a Core 2 duo and the GT 330M is a great graphics card.

    Second one. Core i5 and 330m are better.
