The 2Ghz Celeron is much slower than the 2Ghz P4 (the P4 architecture need
LOADS of memory accesses to do its job well, the 4 times small cache does
have an effect - a big one) The results are consistent from hardware review
website to another: the P4 Celeron is slow, much slower than the Northwood.

The heat difference (if there is any) is NOT worth the performance loss.

Don't worry, the SS50 can handle that heat very well, it can take a 2.8 Ghz
P4 without problems, so a "measly" 2 Ghz is well below that.
