Default Which laptop should I get?

Sony Vaio E series:

Intel® Core™ i3-3110M Processor (2.40GHz)
Windows 8
4GB RAM
640GB Hard Drive
15.5" WXGA VAIO Display (1366 x 768)
Intel® HD Graphics 4000
SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0)

Samsung Series 3:


Intel® Core™ i5 Processor 3210M (2.50 / 3.1 Turbo Boost GHz)
Windows® 7 Professional (64 Bit)
15.6" HD LED Anti-Reflective, 220nit, Non-Gloss Display (1366 x 768)
4GB RAM
500GB Hard Drive
Intel® HD Graphics 4000

I'm leaning towards sony since it has the USB 3 and I like the looks of it better.

Is there a huge difference between the i3 and i5 processor? The desktop i5 appears to have four cores but laptop one only has 2. So the only difference is the turbo boost?

The i5 is better, but as you said the difference is not that significant as in the in the desktop cpu's. Its a matter of personal preference id go with the samsung.

The extra Ram will probably make more of a difference than the processor.

Are they the same price?

I own a Vaio, older model though. And it has a shitty battery, lasts 2 hours on a good day. Don't know if they've made it better, but just a heads up.

I could always upgrade RAM.

The Samsung is cheaper by about 60 bucks.

The hardware is close enough that it doesn't really matter which one you pick. What really matters is whether you want Windows 7 or Windows 8.
