Wuggee Notes
Low-cost processor suitable for basic tasks such as internet, music, movies.
Processor not suitable for multitasking, and computation intensive tasks such as photo and video editing, etc.

Battery life is unknown.
Basic GPU allows playing less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at low detail settings and resolution
GPU is not suitable for demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2,) even at lowest settings
