Pros:

This is basically the equivalent of the old E2220 Dual Core Pentium (which is now discontinued) except that it is a 45nm (not 65nm) chip. Plus it includes VT (virtualization) tech on the chip. This is more than a "Celeron" so don't be fooled, it has great overclocking potential. The chip is designed to run at 200Mhz (800Mhz effective) with a 12x multiplier to give 2.4Ghz. Most brand name motherboards allow you to change the front side bus (FSB) and you can easily turn that up to 266 or higher wihtout changing anything else. That puts you well over 3.2Ghz on a $50 chip. In fact there are several mentions of this chip reaching over 4Ghz on air cooling at a reasonable 333Mhz FSB (1333).

Cons:

The stock cooler is minimalistic at best. Of course if you want to have a quiet, low power machine this may be great. If you are considering "playing" with this beauty then you'll need to purchase a better heatsink/cooler. The chip has limited L2 cache at 1Mb (but what do you expect for the money).

Other Thoughts:

If you have a decent chipset such as P35 or P45 you will have a lot of fun with this chip. It's worth buying just to play with. I have it in a Shuttle G31 box running it at 3.2Ghz and it flies. I will defintely try to take it higher sometime in the future.
