Intel Celeron - 266 886
Intel Pentium II - 266 937

The Celeron's Disk I/O Performance is approximately 6% slower than a Pentium II, which again, isn't that big of a difference in real world applications.  If you happen to run a handful of Disk I/O intensive applications however, you may want to look into getting a Pentium II - 233 since L2 cache does help speed things up noticeably during heavy Disk I/O Operations.

    I'm thinking since the celeron will be such a massive upgrade from my 486DX/2-66, at an attractive price, I'll go for it.

    I saw a nice HP Tower at frys with the 266 Celeron at a very affordable price. My question is, since it's slot-1, will I likely be able to replace it with a pentium II at a later date once prices go down? Will it be compatible?
