I'm having a laptop which is having Celeron process and 256MB RAM. Right now it is good for personal work (without any internet connection). Is my laptop is feasible for internet connection?

I think in your case, it would be best to just try it at a coffee shop or at a friends. I think upgrading the memory if possible would be your best bet. But it really depends on the operating system your running and what you want to do on the internet. Using chrome would give you a bit better performance, and I think it should be okay for general internet browsing but you may have issues with video streaming or websites with high media content. It should work but it will probably be slow and laggy on newer sites.

Either way, look into upgrading the memory if possible, with your laptop it should give the best performance increase. Putting it upto 512 or a 1gb if possible should give you a good browsing experience.

Further to this I've used old windows me / xp machines on 512mb of memory and some on 256 with pentium 3 processors. In terms of internet browsing they ran well for the static sites in my environment and worked well for the staff that were using them,  but videos and online media slowed them down with 256mb memory. However these were base installs with only office / XP and no other software so there wasnt as much to slow them down. Naturally though, the more memory the better the performance.
