5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU!

Pros: Great cpu-used this in my recenlty purchased Envy 14. Runs much cooler than the i7's.

Cons: None that I can think of. Works great for my new laptop and runs cool~mid 30's at idle.

Other Thoughts: Get the 32nm cpu's rather than the 45nm-runs cooler and seems to be quicker and has the Intel Graphics to help improve battery life in your laptop.
