$54.99 - $21.99 with promo code (non-generic code from your Fry's daily e-mails) = $33.00. In-store or ships free with $34+ order, so you could find a shippable filler like these $1.49 for a card of 4 AA Alkaline batteries [frys.com].

This beats a deal from 2 weeks ago when it was $39. This is the 14nm Coffee Lake Celeron. Passmark score is around 3690 as found online.

This is a good deal for a htpc processor or a basic web browsing PC.

For $33? It's a 51W TDP dual-core proc with a decent Passmark score. It'd be a good start for any basic PC these days for the family, parents, etc. Other people still use these types of procs to build a mini-ITX box to use for pfSense or other homelab type stuff. Now, if only those DDR4 prices would drop faster...

Aw, no hyperthreading meaning the G4560/G4620 is better right? $33 is dirt cheap though for a htpc or grandparents build

These are a great deal. I was making a PC to use as a secondary steam link system. I bought the very similarly benchmarked cheapo G4400 because it was 39.00 and was going to use it until I could get something better. I never did buy anything else because it works very well for gaming (or whatever) when paired with a 1060 6gb I had. Was really amazed doesn't even have hyperthreading. This CPU's performace in real life was very similar to my desktop i5. I just bought a bottom of the line sandisk SSD and real life performance was very comparable to my i5 top of the line desktop with a nice Samsung ssd and 1070 gpu. For work related items and web browsing they are identical.

A lot of things rely on single core performance and in real life that is what matters. For Gaming a good GPU is more important. It plays Doom, Neir Autonomita, whatever you like and streams them to any system in the house.

Was very impressed, you can get a lot now with these low end Intel chips paired with even a cheap SSD.

It is hard to justify spending $80 or $150 on just ram, and use a $34 processor.. not hatein, just saying..

You have to spend at least 60 dollars for B360 MB. You can get a very descent Ivy Bridge i5 for 35 dollars at ebay these days.

No they don't. You can get a G3258 for the same price and 8gb DDR3+mobo for $75 instead of $200+ and have the exact same performance as mining isn't CPU intensive whatsoever.
