So i got two old pc's:

this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Can't decide which one to do a little bit of upgrading with

which cpu is better? celeron is newer, but p4 has a higher clock speed

the sony has 4 dim slots, and the emachine has only 2 dim slots

help me decide please

The Celron is more upgradeable. DDR2 memory which you can still buy. The integrated video will be better.

so you think i should stick with upgrading the computer with the celeron processor a bit? even though the sony computer has 4 dim slots, and it just looks like a more of a sturdy computer

The Sony only supports DDR1 which is very old. I would be surprised if you can find any decent amount of DDR1 for sale.

I also suspect that the celron CPU is better than the P4.

Doesn't look like it.
They both say: Maximum Memory Supported: 2GB
