Actually not a bad CPU: http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Pentium-N3700-vs-Intel-Core-i3-610...

You need to read that comparison carefully. The N3700 is a different CPU architecture than the i3 - it's based on the old Atom (netbook) CPU, though it's quad core and much faster than those first slow Atom CPUs were. But in single core performance, the i3-6100U will run circles around it, as shown if you read the CPUBOSS benchmark comparisons carefully. Having four cores helps but has limitations in many cases. Expect the N3700 overall to be a lot slower, but it might be just fine for basic web surfing, etc. And this is cheap laptop, so you shouldn't expect blazing performance.

Does this include os?

From Key Specs:

 

So frustrating that these manufactures insist on keeping optical drivers! Come on people! Save some weight and cost and get that dinosaur out of there!

Take it out, if it bothers you
