- 1.4 GHz well i suppose they have to get ride off all the netbook processors somehow voted cold as in a real lapptop this would be damn near unusable
Too underpowered for my liking. My phone a Samsung Galaxy Note has the same size processor.

It's more like a netbook than a laptop.

It would certainly struggle playing games.
