    The limiting factor is not the "easy to overclock" but the $30 budget. It will actually be a rather poor overclocker.

    Well, you might be right to a degree if it were a Pentium D series or older, but it's not. The Pentium E2xxx CPU's use the Allendale core, derivative of the same stuff Core 2's are made of, like the E4xxx series.

    Just an FYI,

    Yeah but they are castrated cache wise when compared to a c2d.

    And we all know how bad intels rely on cache.....

    Benchmarks show even an athlon/turion x2 are a bit faster in most cases when compared to a pentium

    Don't forget the marketing aspect. I think there's too much by having Core, Pentium and Celeron CPU brands, but Pentium probably the most well recognized name out there. Additionally, it is a decent value between the Core 2 and the Celeron. But to each his own.

    I work retail dude,I definatly see the marketing advantage intel has.

    The only problems I see are with turions,they seem to heat up a bit more then core 2s or pentiums.

    Desktop AMDs dont have that problem really,now at least.

    But these new Brisbanes and Phenoms are pretty frosty.
