"You haven't made any indication of the operating system, but the programs should be compatible if they are made for the OS. The 2 processors are identical except the AMD has a higher clock speed to start with. Although I'd still opt for the i5 due to it's turbo feature.

Some benchmarks here."

"You (most likely) won't get compatibility issues with an AMD processor. As you can see, AMD provides a higher clock speed for the same or lower price.

An advantage of the Intel processor is that it supports Turbo Boost which will overclock the processor on the fly if only one or two cores are used."
