I've been hearing about Sandybridge from Pentium? Is this something I need?

Well I have no idea. Sounds like a brand of shampoo if you ask me. But here's what I stole from the internet:

Sandy Bridge is the codename for a processor microarchitecture developed by Intel. Targeting the 32 nm process, development began in 2005 at Intel's Israel Development Center in Haifa. The codename for this architecture was renamed from "Gesher" (which means "bridge" in Hebrew).[1] Sandy Bridge Processors are marketed as 2nd generation Intel Core processors. Processors based on this architecture were announced on January 3, 2011, and first released on January 9, 2011. An initial preview of a Sandy Bridge processor, with A1 stepping at 2 GHz, was shown at the Intel Developer Forum in 2009.

Hope that helps.

Sandy Bridge is just the chipset which is built into the computer of modern Intel systems. So don't worry about that at all. Just pick the DELL you want and ignore the chipset. Nothing you need to worry yourself with.
