The celeron M works really well when combined with the 256meg graphics card and 2gig of ram. I have one here that I tested in games like crysis with the 1.86Ghz cpu and it suprised me how well it does perform.

I have got one of these with this processor, 2gb ram and only the 128mb graphics and it runs surprisingly well playing Oblivion.

I had to hide the Vists gadgets bar to avoid it flashing occasional in the game.

Here is a link to a thread in misc showing some benchmarks for the celeron cpu.

i look at these celeron deals and it reminds me of a saying -
'you can lead a horse to water, but you cant make it drink it'
Too many people have some sort of phobia of celerons when most likely its all a lot of people would need. Everyone thinks they must have dual core to browse the net lol.

I think for a lot of people, a Celery in a notebook is synomanous with poor battery life in comparision to the Centrinos.

Is it worth upgrading to the Intel Celeron 550 2.0GHz processor considering it's only £20 more or would there be little benefit in doing so ?

Its little money but its also little benefit, the 1.86Ghz will do just fine, you will be surprised how well they do.

Many thanks for the reply :thumbsup:

One other thing I should have asked is would the Windows XP Home Edition be a more sensible option instead of the Vista Home Basic ?

I know that Vista is supposed to be riddled with various issues, have these been resolved to date ?

I would go with XP home myself, others may not agree.
