Default Laptop specs...

As some of you may remember, I joined this forum when I had a problem with my laptop. Anyway, to cut a very, very long story short the insurance company are replacing my old laptop.

Now the policy states I should get a laptop with equal specs or more, so I just want to find out whether I am getting that deal.

Most of the specs of the new laptop (a Fujitso Amilo Pro V2040) are better than my old laptop, it's just the processor I ain't sure of.

My old laptop's processor was an INTEL Pentium 4 2.66Ghz.

The new laptop's processor is an INTEL Centrino M 1.66GHz.

Now, because they're different processors I'm not sure which is better.

Can you guys tell me which is better?

Thanks
