Commonly found in such exotica as old Asus Chromebooks, these little quad-cores are far more capable than most people give them credit for. If your jam in life is running Ubuntu on said old Chromebook with minimum power usage (7.5W) and long battery life then this is a perfect little chip, and coupled with the integrated HD4000 graphics and typical 4GB DDR3 RAM you're actually looking at a nice little retro gamer. Titles such as the original Halo, Max Payne 1 & 2 and even the earlier Mafia titles are all easily playable. The main thing holding this little chip back are the 2.25GHz clock speed and a whole 2MB of L2 cache, meaning intensive tasks such as video editing will be horribly slow. Other than that though, for a nice simple daily driver or retro gamer these are perfect!
