This is the best article explaining the way the BAnias chip works,http://www.anandtech.com/mobile/showdoc.html?i=1800
According to your link there is not much of a difference at allcompared to the desktop 2.4 processor http://www.anandtech.com/mobile/show...ml?i=1801&p=16
" The core is clearly not designed for high clock speeds and thus provided Intel's marketing with a very difficult job. How do you explain to end users that there's a new mobile processor on the market that is faster than a Pentium 4 clock for clock, and because of its high IPC it is actually faster than most of the higher clocked Pentium 4s?"
I did not mean to say Pentium 4 chips. I think a Pentium 4 chip in a notebook is not a good idea. When you look at the heatsinks those chips NEED in a desktop, I cannot imagine the notebook containing such a chip to be long lasting. I know there are those who want to have everything a blazing PC and in a notebook and there are plenty of vendors willing to serve that appitie as it is cheaper for them. Based on what I have read, I would not own a notebook with a destop processor and guess what? The Pentium M can and will continue to run anything the desktop will, albeit slightly slower. But an hours rendering time for a long video on a Pentium M will take maybe 45-50 minutes at best on the Pentium 4. I do not think the trade off in weight, battery uselessness, and ultimatly a meltdown of the system is worth the bragging rights..........
