AMD Athlon II X3 400e
Released October, 2009
The Pros:Affordable price. Low TDP of 45w - can be cooled silently fairly easily. Triple core - better than two!
The Cons:Individual core speed is slow at 2.2GHz - poor for games or single threaded applications that require a lot of processing power. Locked multiplier - not as easy to overclock. No L3 cache as found on the Phenom line.

perfectly capable and speedy for everyday tasks
individual core speed is slow at 2.2GHz - poor for games or single threaded applications that require a lot of processing power
locked multiplier - not as easy to overclock
no L3 cache as found on the Phenom line
higher price than hotter 95w chips that run much faster - eg/ Athlon II X3 435 (2.9GHz x 3)
