I have an old(2-3years old) Toshiba notebook Satellite 1415-S105 with
Intel=AE Celeron=AE processor 1.60GHz. Now I am looking for a new
notebook. I found similar one:
Toshiba Satellite=AE Notebook PC (A105-S2141) with Intel=AE Celeron=AE M
410. Here is my question:
is the new one slower than the old based on processor speed? How can
you compare them?
same series, the 1.46 GHz processor will be slower than the 1.60 GHz.
However, unless you are only using this computer for very basic things
such as word processing and email, you should really get a full Pentium
M or Centrino chip. The Celeron has reduced performance due to reduced
cache memory. Personally, I won't buy a Celeron.
Good luck, I hope this helps.
This is very crude and very rough, but an x.xx GHz Celeron M is going to
be about twice as fast as an x.xx GHz (same speed) "old style" Celeron.
However, there are over 5 dozen configurations of the A105, and I'd
recommend that you look for one with a Core Solo or Pentium M instead of
a Celeron M. The A105 series is, however, a good replacement choice.
It's also possible to upgrade the CPU in the 1415 to a 2.0GHz [old
style] Celeron. My own attempts to install a mobile Pentium 4 were
unsuccessful ... something in the 1415 won't run with a full Pentium 4
(I was using the exact same CPU family chip as the Celeron).
