Intel Celeron N4020 Entry-Level Laptop Processor

The Intel Celeron N4020 is one of the most budget-friendly and power-efficient laptop processors. This 6-Watt chip for affordable laptops isn’t as fast as the popular 15-Watt mid-range CPUs, such as those from the Intel Core U or AMD Ryzen U series. But, the Intel Celeron N4020 can be a decent solution for many laptop users who don’t regularly do heavy tasks like video editing. It can handle fairly well web browsing, work on Office documents, media playback, and other daily computing tasks. As for gaming, the Intel UHD 600 graphics of the Celeron N4020 is one of the weakest solutions. It can be used only for the lightest games.

      Hi, I’m not able to find info on whether the RAM is replaceable. Most laptops have replaceable RAM, but some models with the Celeron don’t. As for the processor, it is not upgradeable for sure.

      The 2nd N4000, 4gb ram, 256gb ssd option is far better for everyday and internet use, solely because of the SSD storage instead of HDD storage. SSD is much faster when opening programs, booting-up Windows, and other common operations. The N4020 is only slightly faster than the N4000, but HDD is a major performance bottleneck. You’ll however have less storage space with the SSD, but if you don’t store a lot of big files, it’s fine.

      In my opinion, the first one with the M3 8100Y / 256GB SSD / 8GB RAM is the best among the three, considering the specs and price. N4020 and N4100 both belong to Celeron entry-level processor series, while the Core M3 is a lower-mid-range CPU with noticeably better performance than Celeron (although not as good as the popular mid-range Intel Core i3 / i5 / i7 series). With the M3, you can have a fairly decent user experience in term of smoothness. Also, these decent SSD and RAM capacities are another good selling points.
