This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 QI-46 Sable 2.1GHz 512KB L2 Cache Socket S1 25W Single-Core Mobile Processor Model AMQI46SAM12GG
Pros: Bought to test out a laptop that was crashing whenever any type of load would get put on the CPU (for example, trying to fire up prime95). It came stock with a dual core, so this is a down grade, but this CPU proved that everything else about the laptop is stable, which for $13 is all I was really looking for.
Cons: Slower than my stock CPU, but I wasn't looking for an improvement, just to test. (And it is an improvement over a CPU that didn't work at all)
Other Thoughts: Maybe I'll look for another dual-core to get it back up to spec, maybe I'll just stick with this CPU. Who knows.
