A friend is going to buy a new computer. He doesn't do anything major with it...just normal home pc stuff. He's deciding between two and is wondering about the proccessors. One has a Pentium IV 1.6 gig and one has a Celeron 1 gig. Any comments on pros and cons? The one with the Celeron is cheaper...he's wondering if it's a solid proccessor. thanks!

"Just normal home stuff" can be quite difefrent from one person to another.

If he's just doing word processing / spreadsheet / e-mail / web browsing, the celeron will suit him fine.

If he's into more demanding applications such as editing home videos / serious gaming / photo editing, he might consider going to the Pentium IV

Anyway, if money is a factor, have a look at the AMD Athlons. They are cheaper than Intel for similar performance
