More like a sandy bridge, not ivy bridge. From Notebookcheck: "Depending on the application, the performance of the A6-5200 is somewhere between a Pentium 977 and Core i3-3227U."

Most apps are utilizing more cores from video encoding to latest games. The AMD Jaguar Kabinis APUs are evolved from the Jaguar tech used in the next generation game consoles PS4 and Xbox One arriving in late November. That is compared to an Intel I3 with two real core and two HT (hyperthread) and the Pentium with only two cores.

Take a look at Tech Report bench of the slower A4-5000 quad core using OpenCL, in the Musemage bench, the AMD outclasses the i5. More apps from Adobe, Microsoft, Sony and others are utilizing this acceleration for AMD APUs.

The fact that Dragon Voice Command/Control is used for this HP is another advantage, because the AMD APU runs it better than the Intel i3.

Finally, another point in favor of the AMD A6-5200 is that it runs much cooler than Intel Ivy/Haswell CPUs with same/similar TDP ratings. That means longer battery life, less fan noise and it is a laptop that is comfortable when on top of someone's lap.

It isn't better than haswell. I use an i7 and it doesn't get hot on my lap. AMD also has much lower resale value and your statements sound like a PR stunt.

Really, dictation that my pentium 4 could run runs better on AMD processors?

I'm excited for the new chromebook, even retail it's cheap and has haswell, 8hrs even if it's a pentium, not a bad deal.

The laptop here is heavy, crappy resolution and nothing special. It's only a deal if you have best buy gift cards you need to use.

Faster than I expected, quiet, enough space to even do video editing although haven't tried it yet. Careful when partitioning...
