Take basic computing to new levels with the Intel Celeron processor. Based on an energy-efficient microarchitecture, the Celeron desktop processor delivers superior energy efficient Dual-core performance.
It was better than the 1.6 single core celeron
This review is from: Intel Celeron E1500 Conroe Dual-Core 2.2GHz LGA 775 65W Processor HH80557PG049D
Pros: Dual core 2.2Ghz, took windows 7 from a 3.7 to a 5.4 on cpu from a 1.6Ghz Single core Celeron. Worked in a Dell inspiron 530s.
Cons: Old tech. . . price vs performance is low.
Other Thoughts: This made the computer nearly twice as fast and gave it multicore capabilities. Yeah, it's old but at least it's do able, dropped it into a Dell 530s that shipped with a 1.6Ghz cpu. No way to upgrade the MoBo and not a lot of choice out there for processors that will work. It was put into a friends computer and will do what he needs it to do for a few more years at least and even after that point can be used as a HTPC.
