Please, anyone had tried Celeron M processor (1.6 GHz/ 1 MB Cash) ?
some reviews said that it is like Pentium M Centrino but without speed step technology,
others stated that it is slow and bad !!
any information please ?? Thank you.

I have a Toshiba notebook with Intel Centrino platform and i think that is the better solution. :)

I've played around with an Intel Centrino 1.6 and it is pretty fast, never tried the Celeron ones..

Well I dont use Celeron for exactly that reason, also they heat too much. The best processor I have found is the Intel Pentium. I have always used it to my believe the best processor there is !

when i was looking around for my laptop i was told that celerons were just a step down from the pentium M centrinos. so basically not very fast but then again cheaper. so i'd say if you can afford pentium M centrino get it instead.

Celeron M is not bad but I would prefer Intel® Core™ Duo Processor

Well ... AMD is better but ok ... :lol:

Celeron is the little brother of the Pentium processors so you can better buy a laptop with a Pentium processor because Pentium is faster. But the pentium needs more power so youre battery will run out earlier then with a Celeron processor. Also Celeron is cheaper then Pentrium. :)

Youre choice ... :P

I have not heard that, or at least not among MacBook Pro users.

I'd read that the dual desktop processor (Pentium D) have this issue.. over heating because the 2 MB cash is not shared but splited into two halfs: 1 MB only for each Core.

But in the new Duo design, the 2 MB Cash is shared by the 2 cores.

Hello,

I just came across this forum by random and I thought i'd just register and post my thoughts :D

Anyway, I have an Intel Celeron D 2.4ghz CPU in my laptop and it runs very well, just as well as my desktop AMD cpu, I was abit worried about getting a laptop with a Celeron processor but it hasnt let me down so far and is very fast, very pleased with it

thanks :)

unless it is made by AMD, it is trash.
If you HAVE to get an intel, atleast get a 64 bit one.

I was going to get a 64bit cpu, but it's pointless really, theres only Vi$ta that going to really support it and even then it's just XP with a load of crappy themes thrown in.
