What is the difference between the two?
what cpu r u talking about the celeron or the centrino?
What the hell is a Pentium Centurion?
You mean Celeron?
Centrino isn't a CPU, btw, it's a set of technologies.
Pentium 4 - Designed for desktops and desktop replacement's
1.3GHz up to 3.4GHz so far.
Celeron - Designed for desktops
Pentium 4 Mobile - designed for notebooks
Pentium mobile(commonly refered to as Centrino, but centrino is a design set, not just a cpu) - lower voltage and clock speeds than the the Pentium 4, but double the L2 cache. The Ultimate notebook CPU IMO.
Celeron M - Same idea as the Pentium M, lower clock speed and lower voltage with extra cache to make up for it.
3.6GHz with a jump to 3.73 and 3.8 soon -- no plans to go to 4GHz, however.
And don't forget the Celeron D. I would never own a celeron, but the Celeron D (I call it the delery) is a great chip!
And The Pentium/Celeron M chips don't have extra cache "to make up for it". They are low-ipc chips (like the AMD chips, ironically) where they have a lower clock, but do more work per clock.
