In my schools Chromebooks, don't buy it.

Its good for chromebooks and can actually run games if you use LINUX and not windows 10 like those other people

It destroys my pride of my great-great laptop :(

This CPU is so extremely sad that even if you could overclock it, it just wouldn't be worth it. Struggles to run windows 10. This type of processor belongs in tablets and phones.

no me funciona ni para abrir google chrome o ver el fac

Great for things like chromebooks or mobile devices, bad for desktops and laptops. This was my CPU for more than two years on a crappy Asus x551ma laptop and oh boy...once I upgraded it was a very very different experience.
