  1. Comparing a consumer oriented CPU to a TOTL CPU from the past.
  2. Forgetting it's faster than an i3
  3. Forgetting it has discrete-class graphics built in so that 90% of gamers never need to buy a graphics card
  4. Not too smart with computers wave

-Haswell based Pentium is entry level, Core i3 or Core i5 mainstream, and Core i7 is TOTL
-faster my ass
-equals $30 discrete card big whoop, total suck CPU
-you are not to smart with computers join a pc tech forum and get schooled because you are way off base

  1. Obviously I'm talking about you comparing a consumer AMD CPU to a TOTL AMD CPU from the past... please read your own writing next time laugh out loud
  2. Definitely faster than your ass, and faster than an i3.
  3. So it does indeed equal a discrete card. Thanks for agreeing with me!
  4. You type like a 15 year old and clearly prove you don't know what you're talking about when it comes to computers - especially when you use a "pc tech forum" as a metric for education. Looks like a case of the pot calling the kettle black Wink

It should do all of those things just fine. I am not sure how well it will handle multiple VMs, but probably not much worse than an entry-level i3.

And it has "5.1 surround sound".
Thanks deelseaker. Running VM's is going to be one of the things that i plan to do. I just checked the dell outlet & they have a intel i5 inspiron 660 for $459. Do you guys recommend going for that instead of this one? I havent opened the box yet, so i could return this one.

Also i am not in a hurry to get one right now. I can wait a few months. Would dell have any better coupons during BF (or) christmas?

This Dell Inspiron 660 [staples.com] with an i5 is often on sale for $480 and sometimes coincides with a coupon to take it down to about $400. Newegg has a couple of i5 configurations that are $420 or so when on sale. Some people get i5-based Lenovo PCs from their outlet in the $200 range. I never have luck with that.

When I posted this, I also posted a $550 deal on an i7-based desktop. But apparently, no Staples store had them in stock, only online. If you think about going to the store to return this PC, might as well see if they will let you apply the coupon to a kiosk order. An i7 is probably your best option (on the consumer side) for running VMs.

Thanks. Will return this one & look out for the i5 (or) i7 deals. Thanks for the help.

•Athlon II X4 (K10) and the Trinity A10 are not and never were TOTL
•The cpu logic in the Trinity A10 uses two piledriver modules which are slower than even a traditional Athlon II X4 (K10). It had four complete cores from which the Llano was based.
•No one and no benchmark in the world will agree with you that an Trinity A10 is faster than a Haswell Core i3 or even Pentium and a $30 graphics card.
•A10 graphics are near the perf. of a lame $30 graphics card and the cpu logic is very weak why is this something profound?
•Said you have not even met even the knowledge metric of PC Tech forum try again.
•Richland A10 is the current model you are trying to defend a Trinity A10 part that has been out for two years. Vishera based on Piledriver is AMD flagship and immediately quadruples the module and "core" count of the A10 and adds a big L3 cache.

I leaning towards returning this and getting a refurbished tower from lenovo's outlet. The warranty is the same and the price different is pretty drastic for me (about 100 bucks) since I don't need super speed on this computer. I also rather have performance over grpahics so that takes me towards intel chips. But I'm still pondering...holding on to this till BF

Any thoughts on refurbished PCs from lenovo's outlet?

A few months ago, they had "Scratch & Dent" i5 machines for ~$250. I snoozed on that & lost out.

With that said, I bit on this b/c I had a couple of the $200 eGCs that I got for $160 each, used the $100 off coupon, and was lucky enough to have someone hook me up with a 15% back in rewards coupon.

Was roughly $385 after tax using the eGCs.
$385 x 0.8 = $308 OOP
15% of $350 = $52.50
$308 - 52.50 = $256

I'm pretty stoked to get this machine for that money after all is said and done (not to mention it pushed my 3rd Rewards acct over the Plus threshold)

Some people were asking about USB 3.0: There are 2 USB 3.0 ports on the back, but none on the front.

I just used the coupon, nothing else. This was kind of a spur of the moment purchase.
I'll continue to look at the lenovo outlet but I'm just worried about a refurbished computer. I just want something basic but something that can last me for years like my current desktop.

Went ahead and bought this for my wife and also got a Dell Inspirion 660 i5 for $367 after applying the discount code for 20% off for myself....Good everyday use(surfing net, emails, web vids, and lite gaming)..Will transfer my old 6670 graphics card to the Dell since it has integrated intel HD 2500..Was going to wait for BF but noticed that the Dell is selling the same 660 for $549 with monitor(which I don't need)...The one I got is a cert refurb but it's one less thing I'll have to rush to a store for on Thanksgiving.. Saved time is also saved $$..

I think this Lenovo is a better deal then the refurb models on Dells' outlet site.
