i5 3rd gen vs a8
I am pretty sure i5 is the winner.
And, I am in CA, so no tax.
The only concern is MIR.

The majority of Core i5s are quad cores. However there are a few exceptions. To see the complete list of Core i5s that are dual-core/quad-core, see this PDF available from Intel.

Even most of the 2nd Gen i3's are faster than AMD's Quad-Cores.

If you don't do any gaming, why get any of them ? I have Core 2 Duo and AMD's Dual Core Laptops from 3 years ago with 3GB & 4GB and they are just fine for everything I do.

Surfing
Watching and burning DVD's
Wav Music Editing
Visual Studio 2010
Nero 10

and many others.

IMO you are better off getting the older Dual Cores from somewhere for under $300.

Do you guys not pay attention?

Seriously....Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

I already posted the MIR. Nobody said the price includes a $100 MIR. In fact, on the promotion it says $399.99 After Mail-In Rebate.

The price will drop at midnight to $449.99. There is a $50 Rebate. LINK

Final Cost: $399.99 AR

No, the laptop models aren't quad-core.

The i5's, like the i5-3210M, are dual-core.
Intel Info [intel.com]

Only the i7's are quad-core. To be quad-core, it has to say QM at the end, which stands for Quad-core Mobile.
Intel Processor Naming [intel.com]

For example: i7-3610QM
