just because one can afford it its not a good idea to pay more than twice
as much money for a thing that isnt any faster in anything but rc5. If you
use some real benchmark you will se that they are almost identical when it
comes to integer speed and the amdk6-2 also have two 3dnow units that when
used makes the amd a bit faster at float than the pII.

The celeron with level2 cache are just as fast as a pII and in some things
even faster. Still a little expensive(almost twice the price of the amd).
