AMD Athlon II X2 235e
Released October, 2009
The Pros:Makes for a good, inexpensive upgrade to an aging AMD-based system. Low energy consumption - good for small form-factor or HTPC builds. Value - costs less than Intel's similar offerings.
The Cons:Aging product - newer CPUs are available. One of AMD's slowest Athlon II CPUs. Better performing CPUs are available for just a little more money.
