The Pentium-M (aka Centrino, when combined with an Intel Wireless adapter) is definitely a step above the Pentium-III. In fact, tests show that a Pentium-M at 1.6 GHz can perform as well as a Pentium 4 running at 2.4 GHz due to it's optimized architecture and 1MB L2 cache.
The biggest advantage the Pentium-M offers is better battery life, since the processor consumes less power than P4-M's or P3's. Most Centrino laptops are also much thinner and lighter than those containing other processors.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
