Would probably make a good Hackintosh?

Probably would. Its a laptop i5 but at least its not a U low powered varient

I can understand your concerns, but I've never used brightness control keys in my life tbf.

You maybe never had a grade B machine before either

It's a 2.3Ghz Sandy Bridge dual core. That's slower than even the current U variant Celerons like the 3965U.

You can't compare designs that are years worth of revisions apart like that on those sorts of stats. Even if they were identical in all of those numbers the newer one would be 25-30% faster in many applications.

And the 2500k is so far removed from the 2410M that all of the numbers there are substantially different from the processor in question.

On the other hand I guess the i5 can always be overclocked to get a perf boost and unlike a Celeron based system the 8GB memory will all be utilised?

Nope, only the K models can be overclocked. Most i5s have locked multipliers.

I've never heard of any memory limits in Intel's range, can you expand on your second comment?

It is possible to overclock this processor (although in a laptop environment it wouldn't be advisable)

I was referring to the maximum addressable memory which I am aware is a limitation of some of the Celeron Processors

All CPUs have a limited number of channels and ranks they can address, but as far as I know none of the mainstream celerons have been artificially limited. The 3965U is specified as the same 32GB in Intel's spec pages as the fully enabled i7-7500U.

A lot of Celerons seem to be limited to 4GB (see here)

You mean the ones with launch dates in the 15-20 years ago range?

Yes, that is the recent past for me ;-)
