Intel Personally, I've always been very confused by Intel's processor branding. Core Duo and Core Solo were pretty straightforward, but not long after we were dealing with Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad, which is anything but marketing friendly. Apparently, Intel agrees with us and has announced a fairly massive branding overhaul.

Pentium better than Celeron

Aren't the actual Celerons based on the Core Solo CPU, that performs better than a Pentium IV ?
AFAIK there is a 2GHz Celeron now with Conroe-L core that appears to be a one-core-version of the Core Duo.
So I don't understand what the Intel employee says. Enlighten me please.
I would like to substitute the mainboard of my 500 MHz IBM with a new thas this Celeron.
