What makes these so bad? From what I've read, I think its something like they have an absurdly high multiplier and low FSB? I don't know, that's just a guess.

There were lots of Celerons. The first dogs had no cache. The second ones were OK, but with a pathetic multiplier you had to get a slow one and overclock the hell out of it to get the bus speed needed for performance. They've pretty much stayed with that method, eventually adding latency to the cache while cutting it to half that of the Pentium version.

Intel-based Celerons? You mean there are other companies out there making Celerons?
