The last quarter of 2016 release dual core Intel m3-7Y30 processor (4 MB L3 Cache) works at the speeds of 1.00GHz up to 2.6 GHz with the turbo boost function. With the hyperthreading function the dual core CPU can execute four threads at the same time. It has an average CPU PassMark benchmark score of 2632 for a mid-range performance overall. It has the smart system accelerator that follows your daily stuff on the computer and helps with your performance to make the system smoother, quicker and more responsive.
The RAM is upgraded to 4GB on this Chromebook and it is the minimum you should have on a computer in the modern days, but will be adequate for your daily multitasking needs. And you can have some browser tabs and apps open simultaneously without experiencing any delays. 64GB eMMC flash storage is much faster than the standard HDD hard drive, despite being much smaller in size. Chrome OS takes up about 6.5GB of space including the Chrome cache, cached files and other invisible stuff and as the operating system is installed twice for security if anything goes wrong with the first one.
So whether the 57GB of space left from the Chrome OS will be enough for you will depend on how much you will save on the local storage. And you will also get a microSD card bundle of 32GB or 128GB, depending on how much you need.
