Irrevelant if you can't afford the $165 that it(an i3 CPU) goes for locally. AMD is all about providing low-cost options, even if that means slightly less performance. Not everyone needs the top performance they can get; some just want maximum savings, and that's where AMD is useful. You may not see it that way, but it is how it is.
If you want maximum saving, you pick a celeron and the cheapest 1150/1151 mobo. And >50$ cpus from intel are usually better than amds.
And whoever is selling entry level i3 for 165$ is ripping people hard.
If you look regular prices, that are not from 3rd world countries, you see that A10 apus are priced similarly than i3s.
