Question about Pentium M vs Mobile Pentium 4 - M

    I get that the Pentium M is the Centrino-style chip, and is faster than it's
    CPU speed designation relative to the older Mobile Pentium 4 - M.

    What I want to know is, what are the equivalences? At one time I read that
    the Pentium M was equivalent to its rating plus 1 GHz, i.e. a Pentium M 1.5
    GHz was equivalent to a 2.5 GHz Mobile Pentium 4 - M.

    More recently I've hear this figure put at .5 GHz, so that a 1.5 GHz Pentium
    M was equiv to a 2.0 Mobile Pentium 4 - M.

    What the generally accepted measurement?

    Also, apart from battery life and running cooler, what are other advantages
    of Pentium M?

    Thanks.

    Yes, that helps. Especially the comparison to your T30 P4-M 1.8.

    I'm guessing that the half a gig is the most accurate suggestion os relative
    speed of processing. this means maybe stay away from the P-M 1.3, stick to
    minimum of 1.5.
