not a great cpu, even for a laptop

This used to be my old computer CPU. It can handle basic tasks, but when you try to do ANYTHING related to gaming (or open more than 4 chrome tabs) it will get H O T, and it'll be super slow.

One of the least powerful for a laptop CPU. Even my 7 year old i7-4500u performs much better. Not at all good for moderate to demanding tasks.
