Reasons to consider the
Intel Celeron 725C

Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much lower typical power consumption 8.13W vs 52.81W 6.5x lower typical power consumption
Much more l3 cache per core 1.5 MB/core vs 0 MB/core Compared to all cpus, 1.5 MB/core l3 cache per core is just OK
Newer Apr, 2012 vs May, 2006 Release date over 5 years later
Much lower annual home energy cost 2.41 $/year vs 15.66 $/year 6.5x lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 8.76 $/year vs 56.94 $/year 6.5x lower annual commercial energy cost

Report a correction
Higher clock speed 2 GHz vs 1.3 GHz Around 55% higher clock speed
Significantly more l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.25 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Significantly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.7 GHz vs 1.4 GHz Around 95% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More l2 cache per core 0.5 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 2.75 GHz vs 1.4 GHz More than 95% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
