No, this is 'fake' i5 as it is only 2 cores. Even if they put i7 u model, it is still 2 coresIsn't an I5 kinds overkill for a chrome book. If I'm buying a portable computer with an I5 I want windows or at least a fully functional Linux distro like Ubuntu.
it's not "fake", it's a mobile processor.. mobile i5 CPUs and half of the lower-end i7 CPUs have always been 2 cores with hyperthreading.. as far back as Sandybridge. all i5s and i7s were 2C/4T in the Westmere gen.
