Hey so, I've been scouting out CPU's on eBay, and I keep running across what look like too-good-to-be-true deal -- exhibits A, B, C

So I'm assuming they're not true. I've noticed that the CPUs that seem to be selling for WAY less than others with similar specs all have "SLBZX" or "SLBLR" in the product description. Even my best Google-Fu hasn't helped me figure out what these terms mean.

Does anyone know what the acronym means, and what's wrong with CPUs described by it?

More about : slbzx

It's the id code for variant model of core i3

SLBZX is desktop
SLBLR is mobile

As dextermat mentioned, it is the ID code for the CPU. Intel uses 5 character codes to designate each CPU. Googling SLBZX Intel will bring you 13,000 results, many of which designate the specifics of the processor.

Worth noting is the M at the end of the model number, which stands for Mobile in this case. That is most likely why those processors are cheaper; unless you're replacing a laptop CPU, then you're out of luck!

Best of luck.
