more work per clock.. its a power cpu even @ low clocks (a la AMD)... only problem is low clocks overall but this is not necessarily a bad thing with notebooks... keeps the battery life up there...

btw its a pentium M processor... the whole package incl wireless technology is called Centrino... not the precessor alone...
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.
I have a 1.4 centrino dell laptop (600m). The 64mb radeon 9000 vid card in it and the 7 hours or so on 1 battery (arounbd 9-10 with both batteries), I love it.
