this processor is worth it it can outperform some of the i5's and i7's and this processor can play GTA 5, Roblox, Minecraft, Fortnite, CS:GO, and Rocket League. Overall a good processor for the value.

It's great proccessor trust me it can handle every multi tasking programs and very better than best pentium silver n5000 and although better than i5 7200u . Basicaly 8'th generation of intel is powerful and include new tec. For programming it's more than enough but for rendering and pro editing you should get i5 and i7 with powerful didicated video card

Its actually great for everything. Its like a swiss army knife, The Intel Core I3-8130U can do everything you want it to but not as fast as an Intel Core I5 or I7


Good

Great bang for the buck. as good as 7th gen i5 or 6th gen i7. I got great deal on laptop with this chip, people don't like i3 but this one is actually good (if 6-7th gen preformance is ok with you).
