This seems like a remarkably reasonably priced CPU for hi-def. Is it  
sure to be powerful enough? I was expecting to budget for a Core2Duo  
("to be on the safe side"), although I have to admit I hadn't checked  
prices of those, yet.

Earlier Celerons were simply Pentium IIs & IIIs with less on-board  
cache. I think the last generation of Celerons related in the same  
way to the Pentium 4, but I'm not sure if it was JUST cache that they  
lacked? Is this processor likewise kin to the Core-whatever chips?

Thanks in advance for any help,
