You are talking about Celeron which is not all that bad, even with Win 8. What about the Atom? I have inherited a dual core Atom based mini-itx pc with nVidia ION graphic chip. It sucks big time. Good only if you absolutely need some kind low power consuming PC for light weight Windows only software like uTorrent or IDM.

The Atom stinks also. Only the I5 and I7 are worth using.
