Which laptop specs would be better?

Hi, I was wondering which of these two laptop configurations would be better, unfortunately there is no option to set up any other combinations....
i5-2410M processor 2.3Ghz, 4Gb single channel DDR3 memory
or for 50 bucks more
i3-2330M processor 2.2Ghz, 6 Gb dual channel DDR3 memory + 140 extra Gb Hard drive
I really just need a laptop that is reliable and will quickly run basic Microsoft Office programs as well as internet applications with ease.
Clearly the 6Gb of RAM is better but is the single channel with an i5 really going to be that much slower?
Or is the i3 going to be the limiting agent in this case? Any help is appreciated.
