Good CPU ,little old but anyway is responsive.

It's still a decent dual core CPU that could crush daily tasks like web browsing and word processing. According to Microsoft, it can meet the system requirements for Windows 11 so this can be a cheaper way to have something that officially supports Windows 11. It is also very power efficient with a TDP of only 25 watts so you could throw this in a mini-PC or a PC with a smaller power supply for a basic build. It can probably run Minecraft at a playable 20-30 FPS. This CPU is still pretty basic and slow, but a huge step up from the Pentium.
