Slow, should prefer a AMD Ryzen or 10th/11th gen mobile over it. Even on Linux, this feels as slow as a school computers CPU.


Terrible

2 months ago.

it does not have a massive improvment in performance that the i5 2520m and yes it is still good for basic task but it may be a bit worse than a i3 1005g1


Poor

1 month ago.

Its good for light gaming even 3d modeling (if you have a nvidia graphics card) however without any GPU the IGPU is Terrible i also wouldn't consider it as a desktop/laptop without an actual dedicated GPU


Excellent

As it says for deskwork it is a work hors

Not a processor you would want to use for development and gaming overall as it is prone to massive lags (one of the worst processors), so it is best to make a switch to a better processor like those in the 10th Generation range (or the Ryzen series) and retire laptops using this processor (as well as scrapping them).

Lags with blender making dounuts.

it is the cpu i use and it is quite stable


Poor

OK for desktop work, light gaming. But not cost effective. The iGPU is a MASSIVE bottleneck for gaming.


Terrible

3 years ago.

This CPU may be an i5, but it is terrible. It can easily be beaten by a dirt cheap coffee lake Pentium Gold. ($60 for G5400, which it is beaten by)
