pentium 4 is the newest of intel's processors. the processor is the chip in the computer that does all the calculating and processing, kind of like the human brain does the thinking for a person. so the processor is simply the brain of the computer. and yes the pentium 4 is good in computers, because it is one of the newest, it is one of the fastest, and faster is better, when you want to get things done.

hope i could help.

I thought this would make it easier to understand that Pentium4 is just one out of many differerent processors.

The processor (or Central Processing Unit [CPU]) is one of the most important parts in your computer. This is where most of the calculations take place. Its kind of your computers brain.

Forgot them. But there are far more models. Like 80286 etc. But they are very old, so not really worth mentioning.
