Before anyone cries CELERON.. This is a Merom-2M (dual-core)
The Celeron T1xxx processors are also based on the Merom-2M chips but have both cores enabled. The more recent T1600 (1.66 GHz) and T1700 (1.83 Ghz) versions have 800 MT/s and 1 MB L2 cache enabled but come with a lower clock frequency.

The Celeron T1600 is roughly equivalent to a Core Duo T2300 with half the L2 cache. Don't forget Quidco

Exactly, ewwwwww.

I concede. Celerons have changed a lot since the horrible ones from the P4 generation, especially these new ones. They are fine for basic tasks as long as you do not expect too much from them, the newest ones are basically core 2 duos with either half the l2 cache or slightly lower clockspeeds and for a casual user of general purpose applications like office suites and web browsers, they cope just fine.

I do however, wish they would change the goddamn name. Every time I hear Celeron I get terrible mental images thanks to the previous generations. Celeron needs to be dropped as Pentium was.

Pentium still lives as Dual Core models. As for Celeron, the 50% overclock I got from the 300A back then made it one of the best (mainstream) deal ever

Indeed it does although I don't think any Pentium Dual Cores have been released very recently? These new Celeron Dual Cores seem quite similar to them in spec...

Yeah I had a mate who was a bit short on cash quite a while a go, think he got a Celeron from the prescott generation but he managed to overclock from 2.8 to 3.4 somehow and it didn't perform too badly apart from in demanding games which must have been despairing at the L2 cache.

Seems decent spec for a budget laptop (I'm typing this on a £240 Gateway laptop I got last year).

My only concern would be the OS. Vista Basic means you won't be upgraded to Windows 7. Personally I don't think there's anything wrong with Vista (I'm using Home Premium) but I reckon it'll die fairly quickly as Vista haters either move to 7 or stay with XP which makes me wonder how long Microsoft will continue to support Vista...

price gone up to 299 now

since this is expired i recommend those looking for a laptop around this price range to go for this similar spec one Toshiba L300-229 £289.97
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/164881 costs slightly more with less ram but it is made by a reputable company and probably lasts longer than advent. Im not going to submit it because last time i submitted a low spec celeron laptop it went cold, so you guys can go ahead and take this deal if you want.
