The little Core M-5Y71 might have a decent boost clock and two cores and four threads, but it's no match for mobile Core series CPUs. However, the Core series CPUs do not have 4.5W TDPs. You give up performance in heavy tasks such as games or HandBrake encoding, for longer battery life and portability.

However, the tablet is just as snappy as the Core series notebooks I review; it's much quicker than devices such as the Compute Stick or Celeron processors. If you are surfing the web, you won't notice too much difference between this product and a full-sized notebook, but as soon as you kick up a program that is CPU or iGPU intensive, you will notice the difference.
