    Pentium M, part of the Centrino trilogy, Israel, Banias, lots of L2 cache, relatively low clocks.

    Pentium 4M, slightly lower voltage Pentium 4, speedstep (I think??), but basically just a desktop P4 with a few extras turned on.

    PM - really good chips, IMO. Very efficient.

    HTH, if not, feel free to ignore...

    The Pentium M is a low power and more efficient version of the P4 core. End result is about 50% more performance clock for clock as compared to the P4 & considerbaly lower power consumption.
    A 1.6GHz Pentium M gives similar performance to a 2GHz P4.

    Hope this helps

    Hmm is it actually based on the P4 core? I thought it was pretty much...well, as much as can be incorporating compatibility with x86 and SSE/2...a total redesign...

    I thought it was based on the last of the P3 line, the Tualatin or whatever it was called just with a big chunk of L2 on it...
