Summary: 1156 socket was very short lived and replaced by the very popular "sandy bridge" 1155 socket processor. The was the lowest of all the 1156 but stil a better choice then most socket 775 dual cores. Although the only difference between this and a core i3 5xx series is hyper-threading which means two core and two threads only.
Summary: According to intel's website, this model does have HD Graphics built in. Here's the link [...]. I am not spamming or trying to put the first review down but bring back up what I think is sort of an unfair review. If you aren't getting any video with this processor and have a P55 chipset motherboard, (you only get a blue screen that says Intel, nothing else) than you might have to go to intel.com on another computer and download the newest bios and video software.
Summary: Ecellent alternitive to a i3-530 if you can find one for around $70 or less. I am using this with a zotac mini-itx motherboard to run my windows home server. Much better than an atom based board and at only 73 watts max, not all that much more energy.
