High temperature, around 50 C when it does nothing, and around 55-60 C when does some usual simple work or navigating in social webs.

Don't understand the hate on this chip, for a laptop CPU it's pretty nice

Packed with 4 Cores and 8 Threads with max speed of 3.4 Ghz, this 8th Gen refresh of Mobile Kaby Lake little fighter is comparable to an i7-7700HQ (which is a high-end mobile CPU from last generation), not bad considering it was a low to mid end chip and carries 15W TDP. Can be found with laptops starting from 550$, which represents a good value compared to others 4 Core-8 Threaded mobile solutions (the i7-7700HQ is found on $750+ laptops), although it's usually paired with a GT-1030 leveled MX150 and MX130. For productivity and gaming fans on budget, this is a good value, but those who demands better performance should start with i5-8300H and above.

Best buy in 2018. Not most expensive, but with real 4 core it can work very hard, only if you want! I can work as a developer (from AC, in office) or as a journalist. Away from power in the nature.
