Geeky question

I might be buying a super-low-price budget laptop which comes with a processor chip I've never heard of before. Are you familiar with this chip at all, and can you give me any insight into its performance, or obvious caveats?

AMD Sempron V-Series V-160.

It's fairly new on the market, and I haven't been able to find any reviews of machines that use this chip. It's single-core, but runs at 2.4 gHz clock speed, with a 512 kmb L2 cache. I know that's all pretty wimpy by today's standards, but I'm thinking it should perform around the same as an Intel Atom 2-core with a clock speed of 1.3 gHz, which should be at least adequate for web browsing and word processing and porn viewing.
