The 2014 model i5-4210U has a Passmark Benchmark score of 3574 and it is normally used for ultra books but still offers snappy performance on any laptop, also with the help of a larger system memory that allows for great multitasking of several apps and programs. It is an ultra low voltage CPU with a thermal design power of 15 W and its 6-cell lithium ion battery (2500mAh capacity) gives you 7 hour of battery life in average use.

It has both the integrated Intel HD 4400 and the new mid-range discrete NVIDIA Ge Force 840M for gaming and multimedia power. You will be fine with many of the 2013-2014 games at medium to high settings but the most demanding games like Battlefield 4 can be played at lower settings. A powerful Haswell processor, generous amounts of memory and hard drive, mid-range dedicated NVIDIA graphics card, superior sound performance with Dolby Audio and stereo speakers and more.. offered at a reasonable price. Very much recommended!
