Should I go for an Intel processor or go with an AMD A8 or A10 ? I am not gaming, I use the computer for email, music , Netflix, and news videos etc.

Would appreciate any thoughts on this subject. I've owned A6 quad cores before, but the only intel chips I've ever used were core duo and that generation.

Of corse! If you are not using this processor for gaming it is still a great processor. It can even play games like minecraft, csgo and lol.

What AMD A6 APU? The A6-6310? That is a budget quad core APU that is about as powerful as the dual core 4th generation Intel i3-4010u assuming all 4 cores are being used. I suppose it is adequate for your needs.

The A6-6310's integrated Radeon R4 (Beema) graphics core is a bit less powerful than the Intel HD 4000 found in 3rd generation Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPUs. It will be fine for watching videos.
