Celeron vs. Pentium

By theadore ·
where may I find a source document that explans in reasonably simple (non-techspeak) language the difference between a celleron processor and a pemtium processor. Something that can compare and contrast the two CPU families. Something that can help decide when the cost and use of a celeron may be worth more to the task then the cost and use of a pentium. As an example it used to be true that a celeron had a buss speed of only 66mhz, while pentium had 66/100/133.

Celerons don't have the onboard caching.

Try this link:

It gives a pretty good break down on the differences. It is from this year but a little old. Ihaven't found anything newer yet will keep looking.
