Intel Core i7-4500U in a desktop computer

In looking at all-in-one computers, I fell in love with the ASUS ET2322INTH-04. The Intel i7 processor with 16 GB RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M looked perfect to me.

But then I checked out the process and it's the Intel Core i7-4500U. That's a dual core NOTEBOOK processor at 1.8 GHZ (up to 3.0 GHz in turbo mode if only one core is runnig. 2.7 GHz if both are running.)

Does anyone here know if my performance will be compromised by this processor? Seems like lots of RAM and a good graphics card, but only a dual-core processor could be mean I'm not really getting the advantage I want.

As a point of reference, my current machine is an HPE-470f with AMD Phenomenon II X6 1090 T at 3.2 GHZ. (6 cores). ATI Radeon HD5770 graphics card.

Thanks

    your current machine will out perform it.

    don't get a U processor in a desktop, even if it's all-in-one. Those processors were made for long battery life in a laptop, so performance suffers quite a bit.

    Thank you. I went with a different vendor and upgraded to the i7-4770T, the Nvidia GeForce GT730A, and 8 GB of RAM. (I can always expand the RAM if necessary, but I really don't think that will be a problem for what I do.)
