I guess faster is better ( in this case ). I'm just starting to learn about the tech end of computers. I'm new to the scene.

Is there something wrong with the processor, is the pc good for granny?

This is perfect for many users.
The price is perfect.

Tooooooo many on FW have their nose in the air, another words they are hoity toity and are missing it is the price point that counts.
Right now this is great for $299

Remember, the Staples deal of $249.99 after coupon and rebate plus 5% rewards is long gone.
Those that got them got an astounding buy.

One of my regular in-use laptops is a Dell Inspiron 6000 with XP, 2Gb, and God knows what processor. From maybe 7 years ago. Use primarily for surfing the web, email, documents.... you know, the basics. When I am on it, I hardly notice any shortcomings.

Another is an early Win7 Compaq, again with 2Gb. Ditto.

The OP's laptop seems like it would fit right in there. If I didn't just get 2 of the $250s, I might consider this.

You sure about that?

Regular price is $279.99 at Best Buy

Regardless if it was $299.99 then, or $279.99 now.... neither of them are "great" deals. Since when is paying regular price for something considered "great" or even hot?

Regular price can easily be a hot deal.....

Only when it comes to H&B.

What is H&B?

If you need to ask.. you cant handle it.

Hardly. I got my Asus X401A w/Windows 7 HP 64-bit, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, and a 2.3Ghz SB Pentium chip for that price.

A 1.5 Celeron for the same price, especially with Windows 8 is crap.

Next year, they are planning on selling new Atom-based CPUs under the Celeron and Pentium brands, at the same price-points.

It's like Moore's law is going backwards. Must be Intel's "new math". Probably computed on a Pentium 75.

FWIW and definitely not to threadcrap - Not sure if there are any left, but a couple of days ago we picked up a refurb Inspiron 15R with a 3rd gen i5, 8GB RAM and 1TB drive for about $375.

It's true that a 1.5 Ivy Bridge Celeron is much faster than a Celeron from, say, the Pentium 3 or 4 era.
But I was comparing a 2.3Ghz Sandy Bridge Pentium CPU, against this Ivy Bridge Celeron 1.5Ghz CPU.
The Sandy Bridge would win, no contest. Ivy is only faster than Sandy, at the same clock speed, by around 5% or so. An extra .8Ghz matters a lot.

That said, my X401A with the factory OS install, throttles down to 800Mhz when on battery.

So maybe, if the IB Celeron 1.5 doesn't throttle on battery, it could be faster.
