Thinking the same thing but it's like a difference of $150 bucks to buy for a person who still plays 1980 games. Taking your advise and getting the 3350! Thanks
n3350 intel celeron is normally on a budget laptop, and its clock speed can be boosted up to 2.4Ghz . Its is affordable and i reccomend it for people dont gaming too much. It can play games, some good titles like saint row 3(lowered resolution) but needed to be set high priority on task manager to get the game run well. so it does not support 100% gaming. its more on daily work basis and browsing/watchign movies
