Any experience with Centrino?

    That mega L2cache should be killer for audio....

    Actually, Centrino is a combination of three things that make it Centrino.
    One, the Banias CPU
    Two, the 855 chipset
    and Three, the wireless chipset.

    The Pentium M(not the Pentium 4-M) is a bit different but adds latency to the process in order to compensate for it's architecture which is somewhat based on the PIII CPU! The first cache is actually 32K and the L2 is 1MB indeed and from what the perfromance ratings on it say, it's very comprable to the P-4M 2.4Ghz! At least the 1.6Ghz of the Pentium M is concerned.
    The main benefit here is the battery lifetime and not the performance.

    So, in the long run you will probably do just fine on the P4 M at 2.66Ghz! The only difference is battery time!

    Opus :D
