    They're low power consumption low running temp processors with a large cache (1MB L2) primarily found in Centrino (or Centrino-like)laptops. Clock speeds run to 1.7GHz (currently, I think), but don't judge them by that - they get a heck of a lot of work done per clock cycle, easily pacing P4s running at a gig faster. They're expensive, comparatively, but there are manufacturers bringing out non-laptop boards for them for special applications (server blades, mini-itx etc) Commell and Lippert being the initial manufacturers to market:

    If they are P4-M then they are crap. The decent one is just known as the Pentium-M.
