They're both painfully slow.

They are probably very similar.

If you have them both, download superpi, and try out each one, and see which one does 1m faster, and there's your answer!

Both awful processors, but i would say the 2.6 Celly is quicker, just because of its higher clock speed, but pretty close.

Yeah. Older Pentium 4's like that only have 256K L2 (The same as newer Celerons!), so the Celery might beat it a little.

The Celeron would out do the 1.6 P4. The celeron is a Prescott core and the P4 is a Willamette core. Plus the Celeron 2.6 has a 533 fsb if I am not mistaken.
