I had a Celeron D @ 3.33GHz stock that I OC'd to 4GHz on my P5N-ESLi. I loved it...They really shouldn't discontinue the Celeron D line, I mean, Some people just want to build small computers for businesses or for the really poor kids around the world...

Celeron D's unfortunately aren't priced competitively when an E1200 etc can be had for very very cheap

they aren't suppose to be competitive with the newer Celerons, Intel kept selling em so they can get rid of all that old 90nm stock but for people that coincidentally, their CPU's fried or overheated or some crap like and just need a quick replacement, where performance isn't necessary.

The Intel Celeron 540s and 560s are still quite common in some cheaper laptops. They aren't too bad, but shouldn't be used on anything more than Windows XP.

Throw Vista at them and they die.

QFT!

Just because its not favoured by an enthusiast, doesn't mean its junk.

One man's junk is another man's treasure.

All desktop Socket 478 CPU production should be terminated if not already and all the crappy Socket 775 Celerons since better CPUs are available for about the same price.

I do as well. Celeron is a curse to this Earth.
