Intel Celeron E1500


$60.00 Released November, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Power usage tends to run noticeably lower than 65W specified. Typically runs cooler than expected based on specifications. Highly inexpensive dual-core upgrade from previous single-core Pentium models.

The Cons:Lower speed and associativity of L2 cache, noticeable difference between Core 2 Duo models. Stock fan has no power controls and this means it is always on at moderate volume. Does not support any sort of virtualization.
