Pros:

Fast enough processor for the average user. I haven't tried it on Windows 8 yet, but word was that starting with Windows 8, Microsoft was going to make changes that would improve the performance of the AMD processors on Windows 8 PC's. Also, higher clock speeds then the Phenom II.

Cons:

For the money, the Phenom II X4 is a better buy. In my opinion, for the average user; you will get better overall performance by using the money you saved with the Phenom and putting it towards an SSD drive.

Other Thoughts:

I find it funny that 2 of the reviews I read that gave it only 1 egg because it didn't have 8 full cores. One labeled themselves as PCTech. Really PCTech? Didn't know it didn't have 8 full cores? In simplistic terms it has the equivalent of 4 full cores and 4 partial cores. So depending what apps you run will determine weather or not the partial cores are useful. That is why I say for average user money better spent on Phenom II X4. It does give you higher clock speeds then Phenom so it should out perform the X4 to some degree. But is it enough for the average user to notice? Probably not.
