Works fine for browsing Chrome, watching Netflix, playing Civilization 5, Stronghold Crusader, League of Legends and Hearthstone. Some 3D MMORPGs will also work if scaled down (like Revelation Online low settings, Metin2, WoW...


Terrible

Dont even run smooth windows 10, programs and games are unplayable and most of time dont even open. Allways work on 0.8Ghz, why dont use turbo? My pc allways run 5Ghz (for doing nothing and dont lagging) and i5 6200u lags in any program : chrome , paint, etc. Windows actulizations take to done about 4-8 hours. My gamingpc fo that for about 3 secounds. I5 6200u sucks combined with windows 10, even core 2 duo + windows xp is faster
