I bought a new Toshiba laptop yesterday with an Intel Celeron 900 2.2 GB processor. I plan to use it for home spreadsheets, word docs, and games found on Facebook. I couldn't figure out why it was so cheap and one of my friends mentioned it doesn't compare to the Pentium processors. I'm wondering if anyone would know if this Celeron processor will be sufficient to do the above activities or should I return the laptop. I haven't got it connected to my WiFi yet, but if it's not fast enough, I don't want to bother. I got the laptop for $348 at WalMart, has a 250 GB HDD & 3 GB memory. Any expert or semi expert opinions would be greatly appreciated. I also tried to search to see where this processor would compare to a Pentium - i.e. would it be a Pent. III comparison?
The CPU is one of the lower ones,very low onesm but i should think it would do what you want to do unless you want to do it all at the same time. Saying that, with all the deals that are on at the moment i am sure you could find something better for about the same price. Here are the details of your cpu http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=41498
In terms of a comparison, it could be maybe compared to some pentium 4s.
I would search around a bit more, maybe even pay a bit more to be honest.
hope this helps
