    Hot damn, that's sexy. I imagine those'd be GREAT for cheap productivity workstations

    Somewhere, over there!
    So, the lower end of productivity? Or will this perform adequately in comparison to its bigger brothers?

    AMD are good at blasting out graphics and rendering, Intel is better for computing as in calculating code and shit.

    Really? I think AMD is better for that as it has more cores and high multi core performance for a lower price than the Intel alternatives which would would help a lot.

    I doubt it would, I'm sitting here thinking of like accounting offices with 4 or 5 instances of Excel open. I'd love to be proven wrong and hear it has a lot more performance under the hood though
