Pentium N3530 over an i3 or i5? - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Presumably that's the only way to do it without voiding the warranty. Looks like the entire bottom is one solid piece with none of the easy-access RAM or drive panels. But according to an Amazon review the RAM can be upgraded - meaning it's not soldered - and the drive can be swapped.

Yeah, I didn't see those 4 comments under the one Amazon review. That's awesome to hear. Just hope its screws and not clips galore to remove that panel.

I can confirm, this CPU is not really good for even light gaming on AAA titles. It can however run some older games such as Fable, or light games such as Minecraft the relies on the cores power. The i3 and i5 CPU's still beat it in almost all aspects but two. This guy takes the cake for threaded applications, and by far energy efficiancy. I am on a 15.6" toshiba with it right now and I average 5.5 hours with brightness maxed, wifi on (usually downloading or uploading), occasional minecraft playing, and running office and visual studio or watching a movie/listening to music. As you can tell this CPU can handle a bit more than your average Atom can.
