Sold.
Seriously, when are they going to realize I don't need all these crazy features. How do they sell a million MacBook Pros @ $1200 a pop? Because they are simple! Well and brand recognition of course.
I'm pretty sure that's the same chip that's in a bunch of budget smart phones (Moto G) clocked @ 1.2. Maybe not. Throw a little memory heatsink on there and go for 1.5
You use any heatsink or just bare chip still?
Was $39 several times in January. Still not a bad price.
Also debating on holding off a month or two. It seems broadwell mobile sku's are starting to trickle out there. Would be nice to get HD5xxx graphics which I hear are pretty good. Really hard to find a decent 12-13" laptop that doesn't have some gimmicky 2 in 1 feature or touchscreen that isn't a chromebook or have non upgradeable RAM & HDD.
Here's a random bench from a quad bay trail... http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/1852538 3 times better ipc and almost 7 times better multi thread
Just an FYI what I'm dealing with now... http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/1935430
What's the deal with Windows 8.1 "with Bing"? Is it like buying the cheaper kindle that has ads? Not a bad deal but this is basically an HP stream with a 15" screen. Non upgradeable RAM is a bummer.
Yeah, If I were closer to $500 I'd make sure it wasn't a lowly bay trail or celeron.Good to know. Even playing with the HP stream 11 @ staples with only 2GB of RAM seemed light years faster than her netbook. I think it's a win win as long as I get something current gen 22nm.Yeah, portability is important too. I forgot the netbook does have an Nvidia ION gpu. Not sure of it's horsepower but I'm sure Intel graphics would blow it away nowadays. I didn't link any Acer's...
