    Okay so I don't really know much about processors and I bought a computer which has an AMD A9-9425 processor but I'm considering returning it and buying the computer that has an Intel® Core™ i3-8145U Processor. So therefore, just wondering, which one is better?

    I will be using this computer for just general use/everyday computing. But I'd obviously prefer whichever is faster/better performing.

    Thanks :)

    All you have to do is open 2 browser tabs and google for "AMD A9-9425 passmark" and "Intel® Core™ i3-8145U passmark" and you will see their cpu benchmark scores from cpubenchmark.net

    The Intel is the much better processor. (y)

    You didn't say what other hardware comes with those 2 computers.
    That can have a big impact on speed and performance.
    Don't focus ONLY on the processor.

    Thanks for the reply.

    This is for the current computer I have. The other one I'm considering is just the same, only difference is the processors.

    If you ask me, don't get an all-in-one computer. You can't upgrade Anything in the future because everything is encased in one case. If anything breaks, you will have to throw the Entire thing away.

    Are you saying the other all-in-one also has 4 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 128 GB solid state drive(SSD)?
    If that's true, definitely get the all-in-one that has the Intel processor.
    And add another 4 GB of RAM to it and run it with 8 GB.

    I agree with lunarlander.
    I wouldn't own an all-in-one, even if I got it for free.

    I only use computers for simple things like watching videos and using the internet etc so it doesn't have to last forever or be amazing :)

    Yeah, literally the only difference is the processor and price. I was planning on adding an extra 4gb of ram eventually.

    Even for simple use, always get a computer where you can replace pieces which may break. That way, you are saving money in the long run. My computers last a good 10 years.

    In that case, it's a "no brainer" on which all-in-one to buy. (y)
