I've heard that for LL testing, a P4-Celeron is about 1/3 the speed of a regular P4 because it has to use RAM more, which takes more time. But TFs don't need RAM since it's all in L2 so I doubt there's any speed difference. And the staircase pricing scheme is actually Intel's way of doing it. You can see it on the CPU price charts at mikeshardware.co.uk.
