Help Me Choose: Processor

• The processor is the engine behind your computer processing critical information and instructions

• The speed at which your system runs programs, loads pages and downloads files depends in part on the processor. Bandwidth, clock speed and the number of cores in the processor all help determine processor performance

• In general, a higher core number indicates higher speed when comparing the same type of processor, e.g. a core™ i7 will perform faster than an i3 and the newest generation will have the most impressive performance e.g. 7th generation can deliver more features such as power and battery life than previous generations

• However, if you want to save a little money but still be able to accomplish everyday tasks like word processing, email and web browsing, choose the Intel® Core™ i3 processor
Intel Cores - Depending on the number of cores within each processor, you can get more multitasking capability, extra speed or advanced media capability.

 AMD
AMD Which processor is best for me?
Today, AMD offers two APU levels: C-Series and E-Series. The C-Series is designed to deliver an amazing HD internet experience, while the E-Series is part of AMD’s Vision technology platform, designed to deliver the ultimate visual experience. While both series include on-processor graphics, AMD E-Series APUs can also support "switchable" graphics, meaning the system using the on-processor graphics for mainstream activities such as reading email or writing notes can "switch" to power on the optional discrete graphics for activities such as gaming, watching or transcoding HD video, or editing photos. Depending on the number of cores within each processor, you can get more multitasking capability, extra speed or advanced digital media consumption
HD AMD C-Series APU
HD Internet Technology is AMD’s APU-based technology for netbooks and entry-level laptops that enables smooth HD-streaming video, fast internet browsing and long battery life. Users can enjoy smooth HD-streaming video, rich online content and faster web surfing for favorite social media sites.
Vision AMD E-Series APU
Vision technology is a combination of advanced HD graphics and multi-core PC processors in one efficient and powerful platform. It enables quick loading, rich web content and sharp photos; watching hours of HD Video playback in beautiful detail and color; and playing casual games with smooth, realistic graphics.
