I have a Lenovo desktop computer with a AMD A4 5000 APU which is part of the jaguar APU  series usually used in notebooks. Why would any company for that matter use an APU usually used in  a notebook for a desktop? I undestand the lower power consumption and lower thermal power but its a low rated processor for a desktop.1.5 GHz. not a very good choice for desktop if you ask me.

In a word...Cost.

 

Did you buy direct or from a reseller?

I bought it from staples. I have heard that they also have better thermal power and will not over heat.

Sounds like you bought a basic office use system. They are usually light duty, not for anything more strenuous than word processing or internet browsing.

 

It's not unheard of to use laptop components in desktops. Some of the new Dells, especially the slimline PCs use 18v power supplies with the same adapters as notebooks. And you can mount a 2.5" hard drive in a desktop since both have SATA connections these days.

its an everyday use computer but it can handle some games such as rohan blood feud.  It works out pretty nice for low level gaming. games that don't use much ram or need high end graphics.
