Intel Celeron M 900 vs Intel Celeron M 743 vs Intel Celeron M 723
Intel Celeron M 900► remove from comparison
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.

The Intel Celeron M ULV 743 is an ultra low voltage single core processor for small sub-notebooks / laptops. It performs slightly above the Atom single core lineup and is intended to power cheap CULV laptops.
The Celeron M 743 is based on the Penryn core but support only a stripped down feature set. For example Speedstep is not supported leading to a higher idle power consumption than other laptops with Core 2 / Pentium processors in this TDP range. Furthermore, 64 Bit support and Virtualization in hardware are not supported.
Intel Celeron M 723► remove from comparison
The Intel Celeron M ULV 723 is an ultra low voltage processor based on the Penryn architecture. It features only one core and is intended for the use in very small laptops and netbooks. Many features of the Penryn core are deactivated, like Virtualization VT-x, Trusted Execution support and most importantly power saving functions like Speedstep. This leads to a higher power consumption without load.
The performance of the Celeron 723 is only comparable to Intel Atom N470 on average. In some benchmarks, however, the Celeron can be significantly faster (e.g. SuperPi). All in all, the performance is only suited for very low demanding tasks.
