    Pentium vs celeron

    Perhaps a bit off topic but don't know where else to go. I just purchased a new computer with Windows XP and has a Celeron processor. The old scanner
    (HP 3200c) is not compatible with Windows XP. In looking at replacements it seems most of the scanners now require a minimum of a Pentium processor. Is this really a minimum requirement or will it just work slower with the Celeron? Sure could use some help here. What can I expect with the Celeron processor? Thanx!

    Re: Pentium vs celeron

    The Celeron is simply a renamed Pentium. There are some differences in manufacturing that make it cheaper, but all Windows systems run on the Intel x86 platform. This includes all Pentium, Celeron, and AMD Athlon/Duron processors. The manufacturer's recommendations typically center on the processor's speed.

    I peeked at HP's website and came up with this, which may help you resolve your problem. My experience with XP and imaging devices has been that most of them will work under Windows XP, although you may have to massage them to get to that point.
