how does the pentium 4m perform in notebooks?
Is a 2.5 or 2.6 Ghz versioni of this chip pretty fast and will it play games well with 512Kb memory and an ati 9600 with 64 Mb memory?

I was gonna get a notebook with the amd 64 but it is just too thick and heavy soI was looiking at one with the pentium 4m which is a half an inch thinner and about 4 pounds lighter.

go for a centrino with a 9600 128mb+ theyre tiny, consume very little power, and little heat...

while both amd64 and p4m soak up power like a sponge...

Is the Centrino comparable to a P4, P3, or Celeron? I'd like to know, as I might be picking up a laptop soon.

i think the centrino is the p4m but in order to be called centrino the latop needs to have a wireless adaptor

It isn't cost effective, either... much unlike making your own Desktop PC, where the reverse is true. You can pick up a decent Centrino laptop for $700... any cheaper and you're getting a P2... not worth it.
EDIT: Sorry, clairification, it IS very possible, but the price of the HDD, media reader, and whatnot far outweigh the price of buying it whole.

is the pentium-M really faster and better than the pentium 4M even though it has alot lower closk speeds?
I know clock speed isnt everything but seeing as these chips are made by the same company how could there reallly be so much difference?
