The most popular Haswell generation low-powered laptop cpu, the i5-4210U comes with 2 cores, 4 threads at 2.4Ghz all core turbo and 2.7Ghz single core turbo. It is still relatively capable in everyday tasks despite it being 4 years old, however system responsiveness is starting to slow down noticeably for the power user.

It is still relatively capable in everyday tasks despite it being 4 years old, however system responsiveness is starting to slow down noticeably for the power user. However, for most users, replace the hard drive with an SSD, and you will be able to get a few more years' use out of your laptop.

very good processor

Performs quite decently, however, the age can be seen when gaming... Can be commonly seen on older laptops paired with a GT 840M, and does pair quite nicely for some light gaming
