I'm looking to buy a new PC - currently have a Pentium I, 200 MHz (Don't laugh) !!
I am wondering about ->
Why are Athlon AMD processors cheaper than Pentium IV ??
The AMD 2 Gig is quoted as being substantially faster than a 2.2 Gig Pentium IV, according to benchmark test. If so, then why is it cheaper ????? is it really true ? is Pentium more expensive becos its got a brand name ie like BMW ? or is it a better chip ??
And the Celeron chip is cheaper still ?????? are they inferior chips ????
Anyone any opinion on the Benchmark test? supposed to be a test using "typical office applications" ????? they don't seem to be using the graphics cards ??? i mean my 200Mhz is ok to use for "office applications" !!
