I *had* celeron once( looong time back) and it really is not even good for 
browsing a flash laden site. Get pentium for anything serious.

I *have* 2 machines with athlon XP processors and they are not as hot as some 
of the pentiums. Code 2 duo processors are lot cooler is what I *hear*. Key 
thing to keep a CPU cool is getting good CPU fan, proper thermal paste and 
having a case that has front ventilation fins as well.

Get athlon XP X2 or whatever latest. Last time I got a quote in April, I could 
get CPU+mobo(7500/-) for less than price of P4 CPU(8500/-). *YMMV*.
