In this area as in office and internet surfing and multitasking not too pushed, it delivers good benefits. It is equipped with 4 GB of RAM and a Pentium Dual Core 4417U low power Kaby Lake Refresh processor. Keep in mind that the latter shows its limits under software demanding processor resources.
