In most cases, the N3710 Is a really good CPU.
1# It has a deadly amount of wattage. ( just kidding, it uses almost no power )
2# 4 Cores makes it pretty good for a CPU, it can handle more stuff.
3# If you are looking at overclocking it with that laptop, you could probably get it to 2 Ghz or higher, if your willing to let temperatures get over 80 Degrees Celsius, this would greatly improve performance.
That CPU Should easily perform the task of scripting and coding to your needs, maybe not so much for heavy-tasks though.
