CPU Performance:

Those asking for Intel comparisons, the A8-6410 is much closer to the i3 Haswell family, such as the the i3 4030U [cpuboss.com], not the i5 series.

The i3 outperforms on general tasks, despite being a dual core

Passmark: 2706 [cpubenchmark.net]

A8 6410: 2513 [cpubenchmark.net]

More cores does not always equal faster performance. For example, the Galaxy S5 is an "octa" core. Doesn't mean it touches these processors.

As for graphics performance, although AMD's APUs generally have better integrated performance, the IGPU found on the A8 6410 is on par with the i3's HD 4400 graphics, comparable to the HD 4200: "The performance of the Radeon R5 is slightly above a Radeon HD 7470M or the Intel HD Graphics 4200." [notebookcheck.net]

The best thing about that notebookcheck.net link is that you can view individual game performance to see if it suits the personal games you play. In some games, the R5 beats the 4400. In others, the reverse is true.

Overall assessment: "There are a little over 50 games benchmarked, and the Radeon R5 only performs better in 10 of those games which are listed below." [tomsguide.com]

With that said, this is still an unbeatable deal, as currently no i3 laptops are on sale for the $250 price point.

Can anyone tell me how this compares to this Asus at Best Buy?

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus-...Id=1707057

I purchased that one at that price and I'm not sure how this AMD processor compares to the i3.

FYI just go to any post office and ask for the movers coupon(say you need to change your address), you can ask for multiple ones(for each member of your household), they will just give it to you, never been denied.

Technically the i3 is a better processor but a 2-cell battery doesn't appeal to me at all. They both have trade-offs and really are equally as underpowered.

I'll just put it down right now: unless you expect a slow computer, don't go for these. I get computers like this all the time from people who complain because they're too slow. Guess what? Nothing anybody can do, these processors are made for low power & thus have low performance.
