It's a slow, low-powered Kaby Lake processor. Works okay for simple use like browsing the web or watching youtube.


Average

I can't say I love this processor, because despite its good performance, the issue is less the processor than all the components that end up paired with it. It's often paired with low-speed hard drives and little to no RAM.
