Here is a CPU mark rating between a CPU walmart is currently selling the AMD e2-1800 vs a i3 CPU that was released in 2011

 

Looks like Walmart wants $400 for a laptop with an e2-1800 and my couch laptop using that i3 from 2011 bought 5/31/212 for $454 with an extended warranty.

Whatever the CPU you use, if you want to give your PC a boost, just add a SSD drive...  You'll realize that many time, it's not the CPU fault for the slowdown but the lame a$$ HDD installed.

it is when you look in the task manager while doing simple tasks and you see your CPU usage is at 100%

 

I will agree though an SSD is a must have now days.
