What Is the Difference between the Intel Core i5 and the Intel Core M?

I own a HP Pavilion DM4 3013CL laptop with an Intel Core i5 processor and 8 GB of Ram.  I recently purchased an Acer Switch 12 SW5-271, a 2-in-1, 12-inch laptop / tablet, with an Intel Core M and 4 GB of Ram.

I use them primarily for email, web browsing, watching Netflix, some Word and Excel, and some light-weight games.

For me, the biggest difference is the Acer Switch 12 stays cool and does not burn my lap.
