This will be my last technology based question for a while. For computer whizzes. Is a APU both a GPU + CPU?

An APU can be used for a number of tasks and are generally designed to offload specific tasks, by design, from the CPU.

AMD makes the best however if money is not an option avoid this route. If money is than you really need to read tomshardware they build $500 computers that run way above cost.
