Re: Is this processor a good one?
Well, actually looking into the cpu, shows that its slightly better in cpu performance than an i3 330m. Which is the baseline/"entry level".
The "gpu" on the die is a bit more worse, but depending on the price, it may or may not be worth it.
Will it convert mp3s, yha, most likely its a single threaded application, so a higher clock speed is your friend.
At 315, I don't think you'll get a better system, other simular priced systems are run "B" series cpus
