How important is a computer processor to a casual user?

I am looking into purchasing a laptop and I found a great deal on an HP dv6, which features an AMD A8-3520M Quad-Core 1.6GHz, 6GB DDR3 Memory, and a 500 GB hard drive. I generally use the laptop for the internet, microsoft office, and watching movies. I may do a LITTLE bit of video editing but it is not significant. How important is that the processor is not an Intel i3, which is more expensive?
