Even my cheapo China CUBE tablet-PC on z8300 runs well for general computing. Never tried z3735F though.
I had a z3735 tablet, after that a lot of X5. Good similar speed. Not like garbage old ATOM versions. This year I buyed in Amazon for $ 35 bucks a z3735 Intel Compute Stick HDMI with Linux (not so good, needs reinstal but I use only for YOUTUBE/NETFLIX in old TV). Many machines comes with Windows and Android too. Very low power consumption, multi-tasks, generally combined with fast portables without HDD. My choice to FTP/HTTP hard work in last years. Add 128GB microsd and be happy with fast in work. Surprised pocket, cheap and functional.
Yes. I like both of these Atom CPU's. Atom seems to have a lot of haters out there, maybe hangover from older versions. But I have found them to work very well with small laptops. But most of all, the fact that they can run virtually using around 1 watt, is really amazing. Means device can use smaller battery, or much longer battery life. Or both. I Like atoms very much
