nfs_bsr-
the "centrino" laptop is just a notebook w/wifi built in, longer battery life and a 'pentium m' processor which (if im not mistaken) currently goes up to 1.7ghz.

this explains everything. centrino is a product badge not a processor:

The M is more efficient mobile processor that runs just as fast as the P4's at a lesser speed and will get longer battery life.
