Good

3 years ago.

The G2030 works great for browsing the web and basic text editing, if you want to play games it can surprisingly handle quite a few older games.


Poor

7 months ago.

I have plan to upgrade next year with all new and ddr5-ram maybe.


Good

2 years ago.

Overall is a good processor for basic computing and editing, however it needs a dedicated GPU to fully utilize it's potential, I'd recommend it if you're on a budget
