Intel’s Celeron 900 Processor Not a 900mhz Celeron

Really. I was mildly surprised.

While looking over the latest release low-end laptops I kept running across “Celeron 900” laptops. Apparently the Celeron 900 is a model designation and not simply a 900mhz Celeron.

Which is a more confusing distinction than one might at first assume. The 900mhz Celerons are still loitering around the marketplace in spots.

So check to make sure that what you’re looking at is this Celeron 900 and not the 900mhz Celeron.
