Love this cpu. Great for laptops, especially with ssd very efficient. Work very well in Acer Swift, 15 hour battery life with plenty enough power for day to day use. Remins me of an Atom, but a super duper version. Well recommended.

For nearly any use with a laptop, this CPU is the real deal!! I have purchased a dell-refurbished DELL 3190 with N5000 cpu and 8GB RAM, with a heat-efficient reliable 128GB m.2 SSD. This laptop is fan-less. The performance of the CPU is noticeably better than my other laptop (i7-4500U, 8GB RAM, 256GB SATA SSD). I have run Office 365 programs, AUTOCAD 2017, and image processing of large image files. Eagerly waiting for the successor CPU...

Good balance between TDP, performance and price.
