Surprisingly the bump to Braswell technology does not result in an increase in speed. On CPU intensive tasks the Braswell Celeron N3050 performs about the same as the Celeron chip in last year’s Acer Aspire E 11.
Everything performs as one might expect from a PC at this price point with the exception of Minecraft. For some reason Minecraft performance was pretty lousy, far worse than even older and somewhat less powerful Atom based laptops. I suspect there's some driver issues to work out.
