Hi,

Could someone please explain to me the difference between, Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium 2 Core Duo, Pentium Solo, Celeron?

So far what I can tell is that Pentium 4 and Celeron are the oldest ones and Solo/Duo are the amounts of cores.

What are the main differences? Which one is the best? For what purpose?

Thanks very much

First of all, the Core 2 Duo and Core Solo are not in the Pentium family, either is the Celeron.

The reall facts about them all I cant really tell you.

Right now Core 2 Duo is the top of the line, at least of the list you gave there. Along with the Core seires there are the Core 2 Quad and the Core 2 Extreme. The Core series of proccessors what Intels first look into other ways of making proccesors. The Pentium series was all about getting the highest clock speed. When Intel made their core series they looked further into the proccess of building a processor and found some things out. One of them was that clock speed isnt everything. Also the Core series interduced the two core proccessors.

I would say away from pentium if you can, they run hot.

I would agree, from your list, the core duo would be the "Best" choice.

quad core is newer, but support for it would require a new Mobo that are not overly common.
