the P4 is probably a little faster, but will generate more heat and use more
power. Unless you are using it as a desktop replacement and doing serious
number crunching, you'd probably be better off with the cooler and longer
battery life of the M, which at 1.7, is still fast compared to most laptops
in use today.

"Centrino" means you get the Intel 802.11b card, but for the same price,
Dell will usually sell you a 802.11b/g card. They just can't call it
Centrino then.
