Assuming cost and all other things being equal, which of these two processors would you prefer and why?
AMD Sempron (M) 3200 + 1.8GHz    2000MT/s
Intel Celeron D 352 (3.2 GHz, 533MHz FSB)

Would I notice any appreciable difference in operation compared to an Intel Celeron 433 MHz?

The CPU Marks (performance benchmarks) for the two CPU's will be very similar --> I couldn't find the exact CPU's compared, but a Sempron (M) 3000 had a CPU Mark of 364; and a Celeron D at 3.0GHz was 377.   So it's reasonable to conclude that since both of the above are slightly better CPU's, both would have slightly higher CPU Marks ==> Bottom Line:  the CPU's won't have an appreciable difference in performance.   Personally, I'd go with the Celeron ... but that's simply because I'm an "Intel guy" [I think their CPU's tend to be more solid ... but there are plenty of other opinions :-) ].

As for whether you'll notice an appreciable difference from a Celeron 433MHz ... ABSOLUTELY !!

garycase,
Thanks for the prompt response.
I'm an Intel guy too. But, the Sempron is sitting next to me in an un-opened box along with a monitor and printer. Would you take the AMD-Sempron back for a refund and would you pay $40 more for the HP-Intel? Assuming a 5year life, that's only $7 a year.
I'm on my way out the door! On second thought, I'll wait for your reply. Thanks again.
