4 out of 5 eggsDecent Upgrade

Pros: Excellent replacement for Dell Inspiron 1100 Laptop. A tick faster than stock 2.0 GHZ Celeron the laptop came with. No compatability issues. Runs just as cool and battery life is still just as good. Gave new life and some "horsepower" to my old lappy.

Cons: Can't complain, does what it's supposed to do.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg had this processor for FAR LESS EXPENSIVE than those "auction" sites ! Part looks new and not used. Worked fine out of the package. Look foward to doing business again with NewEgg !

5 out of 5 eggsDecent for what it is.

Pros: Well it was simple to install and the motherboard POSTed fine after the switch. My aged computer now has a little more oomph to it. It's no high end screaming machine of death that will eat games for breakfast lunch and dinner but if you have an old 478 socket motherboard this will give it a bit of a boost and help you stay gaming for a while. Just don't expect miracles. Pretty much exactly what I wanted out of it.

Cons: Cons... Not dual core and old I guess. And there are a couple of better 478 processors out there.

Other Thoughts: Newegg once again rocked in terms of service, ease of use, delivery time and everything else.

4 out of 5 eggsGREAt not bad at all

Pros: If you are planning to build a basic gaming system with atleas 1g of RAM this processor will run the game pretty good. Im running World OF Warcraft at 40+ FPS. It made a difference from my old Pentium 4 1.8 ghz. It works great and still has the power of a Intel in it.

Cons: So far none.

Other Thoughts: When you install this make sure you buy a new heatsink/fan to it will keep it cool and not throttle it. But you just need a copper heatsink and basic fan don't buy no Water Cooling one it's just not needed for this proecsser even if you are overclocking it.

5 out of 5 eggsNice for what it is

Pros: My Northwood Celeron is actually a 2.4Ghz model, but otherwise is identical. It has been dead reliable for four years. If you want a stable system for basic computing, it's hard to beat this. It doesn't suck watts or run hot like the prescott cores.

Cons: Nothing, except for being outdated. I wish Intel had made an LGA775/64bit version of this core.

4 out of 5 eggsCeleron

Pros: Have this version in a basic system, for tinkering basicly [overclocked to 2.93ghz with no problems]

Cons: None, it gets done what there designed to do.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this, if you are planning to build a gaming system, won't be sufficent as other chips for just a little bit more money.
