-Roughly 20% faster clock for clock
-Much faster integrated GPU and memory controller
-Can do 256-bit SSE (AVX)
-Has an integrated AVC/h264 video encoder, called QuickSync
-Has one less pin than the original i3, forcing users to upgrade their motherboards yet again.

Look, If this is yours:

This looks like it is only available with Windows 7. Make sure. If it is then that is your driver download link page.

DOS based? I doubt it.

I doubt if you could install DOS on an i3 based computer. It certainly wouldn't know what to do with 2 Gs of RAM and have no chance with a SATA drive.

No, DOS is a particular operating system that was the basis for PC's before Windows and all Windows were basically DOS 'under the hood' from 3.0 through ME except NT. XP was based on the NT platform. Windows Vista and Windows 7, the next generation after NT. XP had a DOS simulation that allowed 'DOS' to run within a 'window' for those who wanted it.

If there is no Operating system installed and you just have the BIOS. Just because you get a text based screen does not mean you have DOS or any variation of DOS.

If you want to understand more of why DOS is DOS and Windows is Windows google CPU Real mode and CPU Protected Mode, One of the problems with DOS based Windows up to Windows 98 is that the CPU had to switch between real mode and protected mode when running both DOS and Windows applications. This caused kinds of problem with memory management as the two are completely different.

With Windows NT and its derivatives the CPU boots up in real mode and then switches to protected mode when Windows loads and stay there until the next re-boot. When running a 16 bit DOS application in Windows NT based computers the CPU uses a Virtual 8086 Mode with makes the application think that the 1Mb of protected memory allocated to it is all there is . 32 bit Windows applications can commandeer up to 2Gbs of memory. 64 bit windows cannot run 16 bit DOS applications under any circumstances.

"all Windows were basically DOS 'under the hood' from 3.0 through ME except NT."

While I can agree that Windows 1 to 3x are DOS 'under the hood,' that's pretty much where it ends. Windows 9x/ME are true operating systems, not DOS shells. Yeah, you still get a version of DOS packaged with Windows 9x, but it's only used to start Windows (or to run DOS games, for those who preferred to start their 9x machines in MS-DOS mode, rather than to get any work done...lol).

But after Win9x loads and kicks the processor into protected mode, DOS does nothing. Unlike it's previous role of doing everything for Windows 3x, DOS in Win9x doesn't perform any memory/file system management or processor thread scheduling--all of that is done by Windows itself.

So, yes, Win9x does rely on DOS to get things rolling, but all operating systems have a boot loader. Even Windows 7 has one. It's just not called DOS.

I'm not big on gaming, but see if you can get one with a distinct graphics 'card' rather than the Intel graphics on the i3 processor. Others will expound on this I am sure.

I said 'card' because there are options when you purchase it that are including dedicated graphics chips. There are of course no options after you purchase it, but if you purchase an upgraded version or a different model, you DO have other options. Look:
