    No surprizes here.
    3.4 GHz to start with... not a real big deal. 3.6 GHz in Feb. To be honest, it seems the super-scaling of the P4 is done. No more out-of-the-roof MHz bumping.
    Q4: PSC on 3.8 GHz. Steve said the G5 would be at 3 GHz by then. We caught up! I would like to see these two head to head: Dual 3.0 GHz G5 (running Panther only ofcourse) vs. PSC 3.8 GHz (running XP, I guess... no Longhorn yet ;) )

    The Celeron only $80?!? Thats still $80 very wasted. I've never seen a more useless processor. The only thing it has is clock speed, but no ability to do much else. I feel sorry for the people who get sucked in by the low price for an even lower quality chip.

    those specs really don't sound that bad, deffinately be good for a linux box instead of my 2.2ghz linux box with half the cache, half the bus speed, and almost half the cpu speed....

    Prescott is the "Fritz chip" correct? No amount of speed can overcome the DRM.
