stay away from celerons.
celerons arnt all that bad, especially not that one, 1 mb cache isnt horrible. I ran an old 1.8 ghz celeron with a 128 k cache for awhile, didnt mind it. granted celerons are no where near as good as the core 2s or the AMD processors, and if you want a high end gaming machine I would never buy a celeron, but their great for servers because they run so much cooler then the AMD and core 2s. they last forever to mainly cuz of how cool they run. If i was to start a web server or a comp id leave on 24 7 that I wouldnt be tasking hard i would have no issues using a celeron, especially in a laptop. but yeah, if you want to build your friend a gaming machine, get the high end processors. a athlon 64 x2 or phenom, or a core 2 or pentium D on the intel side.
