Hello!
I'm from spain, so sorry about my english. I'm going to buy a desktop
computer (I din't know if it is said DESKTOP o MOBILE COMPUTER). I don't
what kind of Intel I should buy.

The new powerful Intel Centrino has only 1'4 Ghz whereas the Pentium 4 has
3'06 Ghz. What kind of pentium do you recommend me to buy? I will use the
desktop for Photoshop.

Looking forward to yous answer!

Thank's

Intel's cheap line -- there's a Pentium III based Celeron (though you're
unlikely to still find them in laptops) and a Pentium 4 based Celeron. In
both cases, they're basically the same core, with a smaller L2 cache.


Intel's mainstream desktop processor. Comes in three versions that might be
found in a laptop (regular desktop P4, P4-M -- the main laptop version, and
P4 Mobile.) If you're concerned about power consuption, I believe only the
P4-M has decent


Like the older regular PIII, but typically a very low voltage version.
Generally in lower clock ratings than last-generation desktop PIIIs... ie
under 1ghz.


AKA Pentium-M which is Intel's big mobile push lately. A newer design than
either PIII or P4, it's much faster at the same megahertz as a P4 for many
purposes, and much lower power consumption than P4s (I'm not sure how it
compares to the ultra-low-voltage versions of the P3)


If you're looking for a small, all in one unit with a flat panel screen,
that's a laptop/mobile.

It's unlikely for a desktop (separate boxes for the CPU, monitor, keyboard)


For Photoshop, it's probably more important to have a lot of memory than an
extremely fast processor -- I do work on 6 megabit images on a P4-M 1.8ghz
and it's more than fast enough, and I suspect even a PIII 750mhz that you
can get surplus would have been fast enough.

From what I've heard, a Pentium-M/Centrino processor is nearly as fast for
most work as a P4 running at twice the clock speed (ie, the 1.4ghz Pentium-M
will be comparable to a P4 2.6 or 2.8)... although the P-M/Centrino goes up
to 1.6ghz.

In article <bt9ssj$4o4sj$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

| and what is the differences betwen those Intel?
|
| Celeron,

In new systems that would be the Pentium-IV based version, in speeds of
up to 2.8GHz, this can be considered a Pentium-IV with smaller cache.
It's a good bit less expensive as well.

| Pentium IV,

Power hungry, fastest memory bus and clock. The latest 800MHz FSB
versions also offer hyperthreading, which allows the CPU to do two
things at once, which *may* speed overall performance 10-30%, depending
on the application.

| Pentium III Mobile,

This is the CPU used in the Centrino set, it's a Pentium-III with some
extra instructions. The Pentium-III runs much faster then the Pentium-IV
at a given clock speed, so a pentium-IIIM at 1.7GHz is about as fast as
a Pentium-IV at 2.2 or 2.4GHz. It's much lower power, and is a very good
choice in a battery operated system.

| Centrino

This is a chipset, CPU plus a WiFi chip. A sort-of good but not great
chip, using a slow wireless protocol. The upside is that it comes
included, and that the 802.11g protocol becoming common should speak to
the Centrino 802.11b so you will be able to use it in the future. Note
that I have NOT actually tried that compatibility, but it is supposed to
work.

That should help you find where you want to look next.

No, you're thinking of Pentium-M

Pentium III Mobile is a separate product, still available in a few laptops
at up to 1.33Ghz, and in LV (Low Voltage) at up to 1ghz, and ULV at up to
933mhz.

http://www.yqcomputer.com/ +proc_p3p_m&

see also:

http://www.yqcomputer.com/ +header_products_notebook&#processors

Intel has a total of 7 mobile processor lines right now, although of these,
my impression is that only 3 (The Pentium-M, the Pentium 4-M, and the
Pentium III-M) are really low-power processors as opposed to repackaged
desktop chips.

Intel Pentium M Processor
Mobile Intel Pentium 4 processor supporting Hyper-Threading Technology..
Mobile Intel Pentium 4 Processor
Mobile Intel Pentium 4 Processor - M
Mobile Intel Pentium III Processor-M
Intel Celeron M Processor
Mobile Intel Celeron Processor



It's just a trademark for the combination, but in practice since the
wireless "chip" is just a MiniPCI card in most cases, you can get Pentium-M
notebooks with better third party wireless cards.


Most 802.11g wireless access points can be used with older 802.11b cards
without any problem.
