There's a world of difference in those processors. The AMD is a 64-bit processor, and although there isn't much software that will currently take advantage of it, it still gives a speed boost. I think that one runs at about 1.6 mhz. To my way of thinking, the AMD is the better of the two. Celeron is the lower-end processor while Pentium 4 is the higher-end. With AMD, the 64-bit processors are the higher end, while the Duron is more comparable to the Celeron, with the Sempron taking the newest slot. Sempron is basically a renamed Athlon XP processor with no new technology.
The AMD 64's are more comparable to the Pentium 4's. AMD offers better bang for your buck.
