Good points:
Brilliant CPU for people on a budget. Really quick and combined with 8GB RAM and a good motherboard, it'll handle most things average users can throw at it. Can't shout about this enough for the price

Manufacturer's Description

Intel’s LGA1155 Sandy Bridge CPUs are fantastic, but the range has made little impression on the budget end of the market yet. The dual-core Core i3-2100, retailing for £90, is out to set this straight. At first glance, the i3-2100 looks like a CPU lightweight. It doesn’t support Turbo Boost, and to hammer this unpleasant nail home further, lacks the ‘K’ designation that denotes an unlocked multiplier too. This means that the i3-2100 won’t be winning any prizes for being a budget overclocking CPU.

What’s more, now that many games and applications are finally making use of four or more cores, the i3-2100’s dual-core configuration means that its list of selling points is fairly short. Thankfully, it has Hyper-Threading to add two logical cores. Meanwhile, the i3-2100 has a clock frequency of 3.1GHz and, as it’s made using a 32nm production process, Intel states that it has a maximum TDP of just 65W – a third less than the power consumption of the Core i5-2500K quad-core CPU.
