The "I'm just gonna watch YouTube and do projects in powerpoint and excel" processor. Great if you need a (sort of?) sleeper PC, a entry level gaming pc (thanks to it's radeon R7), or, basic desktop use. Not recommended for playing heavy games or workstation, although you can try if you pair with something like a 750 ti.
