      Phoronix did a review although it was all server stuff IIIRC.

      Now stock is coming through you'd be mad to go i3 anyway as the FX6300 eats it alive.

        I might go with an FX10 or something since semi decent processor with okay inbuilt graphics gives me a while to save for an nvidia graphics chip then.

          There is no FX10 and there aren't any FX processors with built in GPU - that's expected to come with SteamRoller - but if SA is to be believed then they've been pushed back to 2014.

                Looks like I might go for the A10 quite happily for now.

                Could sell my laptop after for a much more decent graphics card.
