          The gap between songs is a function of the software you use, not your hardware. (Even a 486 is capable of playing MP3s with no gap if it uses the right software.)

            How fast of Celeron are you comparing to? I had a celeron 500 on an intel flex ATX board. Took the same memory, hdd, etc and moved over to an EPIA5000 (500MHz) and reinstalled XP clean and it was about 1/2 the speed. For example the 500mhz celeron took 30 seconds to boot XP and the EPIA took 1 minute. This was changing board and processor of course but I was a bit disappointed with the EPIA
