The Yonahs can run off S479 or S478 with upgrades. The Asus Intel chipset series will work with Core Duos, but not mine. It might work on the laptop he has, if it contains a socket. If he gets a Pentium M based, he can upgrade, if he has the right chipset models.
yeah the dothan core has 2MB lev 2 cache or at least thats what mine has ,
also as for upgrading , my laptop has a socket 479 mpga and so can take either a celeron M a p4 M or a P-M but you have to check what your cooler can take otherwise there may be heat problems which could be fatal in a laptop
[QUOTE=alvino;624506]Depends what you're looking for. Since they're both mobile processors, I'm guessing you're looking for performance per watt, in which the Pentium M would be more suitable. The Pentium 4-M might outmuscle it, but it consumes way more power. The Pentium M was designed to give great performance while managing power efficiently, something very important when it comes to notebooks.
Yeah yeah i understand the centrino platform , chipset-wireless card-processor . my laptop had the centrino trio but then i believe the wireless card must have broken and so the user who had it before me replaced the wi-fi card with a non centrino one and so now it isnt true centrino
any way many people confuse the pentium M for the intel centrino processor which dosent actually exist
