Celerons are used in laptops which means they use less power which means they run cooler. Even though they both have a Prescott core the And plus they are a budget cpu that costs less than a regular cpu due to a smaller cache. Kind of like the new crappy Semprons. I hear that AMD is going to phase out Athlon XP's within a month and only offer Semprons for Socket A. This makes me think... When will 64-bits rule the world?
I'm with carlo. Get the celeron and oc it til it bleeds! I got my celeron to 3.1-3.4Ghz on stock air cooling(stable) so imagine what you could do with an aftermarket hsf!
