If they come from single core procs, this will still be a performance increase for them.

An average joe will appreciate things like eSATA. (For external hard drives, PVRs...etc)

They will also appreciate USB 3.0 more as more products begin to use the standard.

If it's just for office like office documents and videos and stuff, this is definitely the one for them.

And no, it won't. Well, probably in the long run, when they do a lot of multitasking.

But meh, there's this bunch of PCs in the office where the specs are like i5 760 and 5670 and they only use it for office documents lachen.gif

I can see where you're coming from but I can't see me telling them "1.6GHz dual core processor" and have it appealing to them.

Also, anyone know when this is being released in America? I can find links through google but it's $150ish. If purchasing one, I want to get it at Amazon or Newegg.

I doubt most people would even know how fast that would be in reference to other systems; it's all about the selling tactics.

For things like office applications, this would easily be sufficient -- just explain how little processing power is needed for whatever office suite is being used, and how it's still powerful enough to peruse the web at the same time (albeit maybe not a bunch of tabs with videos). Then explain the power savings and how much money it could save per month. Chances are, within two years the machine will pay for itself in power savings.

Amazon's got it for $155, but they no stock. I'd say that $175 after shipping is a little steep, too, for the market this is aimed at.

UEFI is not a meaningless feature, on my laptop it nearly halved boot time. (No, I would rather not go and get a cup of tea or something while my system loads when I can just wait 30 seconds for it to boot, probably sub 10 seconds if I have an SSD)

And yeah, I know there's a significant difference in power draw. Just talking about bang for buck here. I am waiting to see more E-350 netbooks so I can get one.

If you wanted proof that an athlon II setup would be cheaper,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103903

I saw another review showing brazos itx mobo/AIO's for $130 USD. However, I think the E-350 will be cheaper in most cases but depending on what you want, the athlon II is a better buy when it comes to bang for buck (CPU-wise at least)

There's an ASRock one as well.

are you saying you need more cache ? cause your wrong

there is overclocked on this somewhere at 1880mhz and L2 on this chip is running half of the core speed. ( If I recall)

I down clocked my phenom II x6 and set two cores to compare the superPi score the gave with 40 secs vs 37 secs for my down clocked cpu which has L2 cache a core speed and L3 cache a 2.0ghz.

that's about chip only has 15% the cache but it's about 93% of the speed.
7Mbs of cache vs 1Mb.

the cpu-z is nice 8 way L1 data cache is nice
the cpu doesn't even have a hypertransport.

Don't give them the clock speed then.

Emphasize "dual core", "energy savings", "wide functionality with multiple ports", and "Radeon graphics"
