If you look at the data sheets in the links you provided, there are some pretty obvious clues as to which is better. The clock speed is a biggie - 2.4GHz for Celeron compared to only 866MHz for the PIII. The FSB is another biggie - 400MHz compared to only 133MHz. So clearly, the Celeron will blow the socks off the PIII.
Plus the Celeron system has more, and faster DDR PC400 RAM compared to the PIII system that uses less of the much slower SDR PC133 RAM.
So no question, the Dell 2400 is a much better system.

Well, I agree that neither are "spectacularly fantastic" compared to a typical computer from today. But when comparing only with each other, that particular Celeron is much better than that particular PIII. And when looking at the computers as a whole, the much faster bus, faster and more RAM, faster CPU, and better integrated graphics too, puts the Celeron computer head and shoulders above the PIII based computer.
Neither of them are spectacularly fantastic. They're about as good as each other
