Now, suddenly you're acting like the p-m is getting a resurrection. Let's just leave the p-m where it is..an insignificant hashmark in the evolution of notebook pc's..which begat the sheer genius of incorporating a P4 in a notebook..then came the Athlon Mobile..and so on.
You know what is funny is that you act like ANY PM rig is a 3 cylinder Yugo next to you P4 500 hp Hummer. But in fact, a closer comparison would be like this: a PM is more like a 220 hp Grand Cherokee that gets 30 mpg, while your P4 is like a 250 hp hummer that gets 10 mpg. That is closer to the truth. Does yours have more power? A little, yes - but with significant negatives attached. But the better *all around* machine has a little less HP, but is certainly not *underpowered* by any means. But to make you feel better - you win the raw horse power war.
