Celeron isn't going to be great for some windows 10 basics

Synthetic benchmarks tend to put the Atom-derived Apollo Lake CPUs like the N3350 in competition with standard laptops. However the user is experience is such that even an older refurb i5 laptop in this price range (think 3rd generation Ivy bridge) is probably a better user experience.

Kaby Lake-derived Celerons are a little easier to sell as a "good for the basics" laptop, but unfortunately those command a relatively significant price premium over these (around $50-100).

The price for new is nice, but the product is really just OK. Thanks for not over-selling it.

Good luck!

Jon
