Both seem to have similar specs except for the CPU? Is it worth the 130$ difference? I plan on doing lightwork on it (Google Drive, reading emails, watching videos, no gaming at all except for the occasional Pokerstars). The 5000 has the better WiFi but I have 25/10 at home, so I don't think it's a big deal. I'm leaning towards the 3000. I think the 5000 has backlit keyboard too, but not sure.

500$-10%= 450$ before taxes +9$ Rakuten at 2% CB.
630$-10% = 567$ before taxes + 11.34$ Rakuten at 2% CB.

Any thoughts? Ty!
