is a range of x86 CPUs from Intel targeted at budget/value personal computers
can run all IA-32 computer programs , but their performance is somewhat lower when compared to similar, but higher priced, Intel CPU brands.
the Celeron brand will often have less cache memory, or have advanced features purposely disabled. These missing features have had a variable impact on performance. In some cases, the effect was significant and in other cases the differences were relatively minor.
