Intel Celeron M 900

The Intel Celeron 900 is a mobile single core processor for cheap laptops. It is based on the Penryn core (as the Core 2 Duo Dual Core processors) but many features and one core are deactivated. The missing power saving features, like Speedstep, lead to a lower battery runtime (compared to Core 2 Duo powered laptops). Furthermore, features like Virtualization and Trusted Execution are deactivated.

The performance of the single core processor is located in the entry level segment. Due to the missing 2nd core, the performance may suffer when using many applications at once. Otherwise (in synthetic benchmarks), the Celeron M 900 is on par with a 1.3 GHz Athlon II Neo K325. The similar clocked AMD V-Series V120 should be slower due to the smaller Cache and different architecture. On contrast it usually features the faster chipset graphics card by ATI leading to a better overall performance.
