Again, better cpu, there are even some 2th generation pentiums that are performing similarly with i3 (from like 20 years ago), newer doesn't mean better. Regarding RAM or GPU there shouldn't be a problem, 2GB of RAM won't bottleneck for videos and internet, even if the system will use 1.5 GB (unlikely) the remaining 500 MB are more than enough for the GPU to handle HD videos.

Then something is not right, you say that my Pentium G2030 is not better than the Core 2 Duo E6850, for example? Then is the increase of the CPU performance more a marketing-induced illusion than a real increase?

Many programs can't handle multiple cores, so the base speed is still important for them.
