Specs: XP/Home, 933/512

Hi guys and gals...just wondering if you could help me out...thought about purchasing a notebook...can anyone tell me what is the major difference between the Centrino M vs the Pentium M other than price? What type of performance differences are there that distinguish differences between the two of these? Is Centrino M reliable? Worth saving $250 or so???

Thanks!!!!!

Centrino is not a processor chip. It is Intel's way of getting it's technology into laptops.

Biggest difference between celeron and pentium is the cache. You'll find that the celerons tend to be a little hotter as well. If you can afford it, go away from celeron.

"The Celeron M and the Pentium M share the same architecture. However, the Celeron M supports neither Intel's SpeedStep nor the Deeper Sleep State. Thus, it actually consumes considerably more energy when idle. As a result, while the processor and the notebook may be cheaper than a model equipped with a Pentium M, the battery time will definitely be shorter."
