According to Intel, the minimum speed of a mobile Celeron is 266MHz with a 66MHz bus.  That's the lowest speed of a mobile Celeron that was manufactured and released to the public, if that's what you were asking.

Checking a friend's Celeron laptop, the lowest power management setting for CPU is 12.5% of normal. Assuming micro66 is correct about 266Mhz being the slowest normal speed, would be a CPU speed at the strictest power management mode of 33Mhz.

But you are a little vague in your question.  Do you want to know the above minutae or were you wanting to buy a new laptop with the slowest CPU?  If that's the case, checking www.pricewatch.com reveals that the current *new* Celeron laptops bottom out at 500Mhz.  Anything slower is going to be second hand, refurbished, or on desperate clearance.

So, if you could get back to us with why you need to know this, we can help narrow things down.

Something that might clear something up for you as well, 233MMX Class CPUs were pretty rare in desktops, but common in notebooks, and there never was a 266MMX desktop CPU, but Intel managed to make a 266MMX notebook CPU, due to lower power requirements, and they are fairly common, so if you are seeing 233, or 266Mhz  Intel CPUed notebooks, they could well have an MMX CPU rather than a P2 or Celeron mobile CPU, if it is not specified.
