Default Re: Pentium vs. Celeron

Usually the difference in high end and low end cpus is the cpu cache size- a larger cpu cache allows the cpu to function faster and store larger amounts of instructions without refresh. Most highend cpu's also support more functions.

And a Pentium will often be more powerful per clock tick; and will alway last longer. They're just better built.
