the intel quad core pentium N4200 was good, the processor not very strong but it's good to use!


3 months ago.

The main reason is Fps, for real the fps drops are highere in i3 (M 380) but in pentium (N4200) it manage it well to keep constant!

Great performance for small laptops. It really shines, and it doesn´t need active coolling.

Salesman told me the the max CPU speed was 1.1 GHz. He didn't know I saw the burst possibility to 2.5 GHz and this was good for negotiation ;-) . I was taking classes at that point and at not much money at the time. I still don't regret buying it and I still use it from time to time and it keeps amazing me. Compared to the Core i3 (6600) the N4200 had a score of 8.0 and the i3 a score of 8.1. Difference was the price.

If you look at the specs at a glance it looks like it's gonna be something crazy but a computer with that processor is gonna be useless in 3 years tops.

Nice performance, low TDP, perfect for notebooks designed for long lasting performance

It Kinda Laggy When Playing Roblox.But ROBLOX Is Still Playable :D


6 months ago.

It works ok for modelling on a tiny level in blender and running simple scenes in unity, but not much else.


3 years ago.

Just what need to do to have same performance as 4200u is enable max performance powerplan ant cpu clock rate bottom line will stick on 2.1 Ghz on iddle up to 2.44 Ghz on burst (all 4 cores)
