It sucks donkey balls with how fast it is. I can't load a basic webpage without it stuttering for 5 minutes.

Just bought this in a 11.6 inch tablet and WOW. Keeping in with my expectations it actually blew me away. I use it for daily web development, photoshop, Media Playback, and it hasn't hindered me in anyway. I can remote into my desktop if I need more power. Also, with the keyboard its great in tablet mode. Had DOOM 3 running at 1080p getting 30-46 fps at 1080p. Old title yes but these are low spec's. For everyday use this CPU is no slouch. It will multitask with ease with 8GB. Keep your expectations in line and this chip will be fine!! Enjoy!!

This is slow and not good for play 64bit game

Decent, but the cpu usage is always at 100%, the performance is extremely poor.

I got it in tablet.. just 6w consumption so it runs up to 10 hours. Power enough for document work, web browsing and work with two full HD displays. Perfect for games like chess or tetris :).

Little bit slow but still way better than atom

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.
