These are lower speed, smaller L2 cache Pentiums. The problem is that there isn't a lot of price differential any more, so unless you are really shopping at the very bottom, there's not much point in buying these. On the other hand, processor speeds are so high anyway, if you are buying for just a desktop web/email machine, having a faster processor probably doesn't matter, so you might as well save a few dollars.

The smaller cache is much more a hindrance to performance than the lower clock speeds. Actually, the high end Celerons run almost as fast as the Pentium 4, the later being a somewhat brain-dead design with its ridiculously deep pipeline. It was also discovered that higher end Celerons could be run in a dual-Pentium motherboard.

Now, if you want performance and at a more reasonable price, forget the Intel processors and use AMD Athlons.
