Because the Celeron has always been seen as the copycpu from the pentium. if you compare the celeron with the pentium that comes from the same year, the pentium is your best bet.
in this case. the celeron has been launch 6 month later than the pentium.
you dont have to worry which one you pick between the 2.
for how the market stands. pick the cpu that does the least harm to your wallet
so if you see an celeron for $10 and an pentium for $5, take the pentium.
also avoid ebay. lot's of cpu scam's
got you bro thanks for the answer iam gonna wait for other people to say what they think not because i dont trust youre answer but only to make sure.
dont worry about my wallet because i have both of them for free from a friend and i am still not quite sure what to pick maybe someone who tried both can answer.
"why do people always say that pentiums are better than Celerons?"
That's just a blanket statement they are making based only on the two family names, but unless you take in to account the actual numbers (ie speed etc) which come after the name, you cannot make a fair comparison on performance.
