I am thinking about purchasing a new laptop with Intel® Celeron® Processor 1005M (3M Cache, 1.90GHz) w/ 4GB of RAM. When Celeron CPUs were introduced (10+ years ago), I remember purchasing one and found out it was so slow and decided to NEVER buy it again.

But that was a long time ago and wonder how much Celeron has advanced. Is it better now?
As seen below, the more $ I spend, the faster processor I can get, but not sure if it all worth it.

Intel® Pentium® 2020M Processor (2M Cache, 2.40 GHz)         $50
Intel® Core™ i3-3120M Processor (2.50GHz, 3MB L3 Cache)      $100
Intel® Core™ i5-3230M Processor (3M Cache, up to 3.20 GHz)   $200

I am going to use the laptop 99% of the time surfing the Internet, You Tube, Word/Excel/Access. So I may be able to get away with Celeron ... but because my son plays "League of Legends" occasionally, I was not sure if this Celeron will be adequate.

Thanks.
