  1. Yeah...lower power....a system with A8 does not need a separate GPU, whereas to use a phenom you would need a separate graphic card.
    You did ask about advantages and I found one. Price I don't know.
  2. which a8? the 3850 or the 3870k?
    depends on what you want to do with the cpu/apu.
    a8 are good for entry level computing and casual gaming. a8 has the most powerful igpu in the market today. if gaming is your need, then you'll get more from a phenom + cfx/sli mobo.
