This is what intel has said about the markings:
Note: ‘A’,‘E’, ‘B’ and ‘EB’ nomenclature is used to differentiate processors within a processor speed designation when there is an overlap between processor frequencies and functionality.
- ‘A’ designates 0.13 micron manufacturing process
- ‘E’ designates Advanced Transfer Cache and Advanced System Buffering support.
- ‘B’ designates 133 MHz System Bus support.
- ‘EB’ designates Advanced Transfer Cache, Advanced System Buffering and 133 MHz System Bus support

Basically your paying for a better cache system.

Me, personaly? I'm cheap. I don't think the cost is worth the little bit of extra performance. With games and doing photos there might be a difference, but I still couldn't justify the cost difference. Again thats me. I still have old 133 pentiums running in my house. I think I finally got rid of the 486 or two laying around.
