Specs: N/a, N/a

Hi, how do I identify what processor this is: x86 Family 6, Model 6, Stepping 5? And x86 Family 6, Model 8, stepping 3 or 10 etc? I want to compare the processors with others eg PIII, PIIII etc to see whether such a machine is worth having. Thanks.

I have just found this page (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216204)
showing a list as follows:

Intel Celeron Intel, x86 Family 6 Model 5
Intel Celeron Intel, x86 Family 6 Model 6
Intel Mobile Pentium III Intel, x86 Family 6 Model 8
Intel Pentium II Intel, x86 Family 6 Model 3
Intel Pentium II Intel, x86 Family 6 Model 5
Intel Pentium II Intel, x86 Family 6 Model 6
Intel Pentium III Intel, x86 Family 6 Model 7
Intel Pentium Pro Intel, x86 Family 6 Model 1

I assume this list is correct, please let me know if you think it isn't.
I've just noticed that there are two entries for some of them: Family 6 Model 6 for instance is listed both as Intel Celeron and Intel Pentium 2, how is this?
Also both Model 5 and 6 are listed as Intel Pentium and Intel Celeron.
I'm now even more confused, can anyone shed some light on this for me?

Also, what about the Stepping numbers?

The model number is the core, such as Willamette, Northwood, Prescott, for the P4. Stepping is minor revisions to the core.

If you need to know the specs on your CPU, download & run CPU-Z:

"to see whether such a machine is worth having"
depends on the situation. To someone with no other computer & your just using it for office and internet, definitely yes.
