The celeron-m will be more power effecient. I would go with a Pentium-M chip not a celeron. But if you have to choose between the 2, i would pick the celeron D

Which company? Make sure it's not a DELL. Aren't AMD 64 good?

celerons are for basic pc applications like paint. (lol) You wont be dont a lot of multi-tasking. If youre on a budget, seriously consider a Athlon XP. For the budget, it's a WAY WAY better CPU. But i agree with above posts, the pentium M is a great processor, and now, it's becoming more available in cheaper systems.

the celeron is basically a P4 with less cache, some ppl said that they were p4 that got rejected so they decided to make the celeron but thats not true
