many manufactures are still playing to Intel as such they often craft their AMD products with lower performing peripherals , as a for instance HP Pavilion Silver Iridium with an Intel chip features two cooling fans and a solid state HD whilst the AMD version only has a single fan and a standard hard drive!!

It's decent CPU for basic usage. It can handle olde games but overheats fast.

Dont underestimate this APU. POINT

For an APU it's decent.

It seems like a lot of laptops with this chip heat and throttle very quickly. Owned one in the past and the fact that it has an IGPU on it doesn't help at all. Not like this thing is that powerful anyways; it's kind of in that spot where it's too good for old games but not enough for newer titles.
