Pentium M is great, not my cup of tea right now
The fact is, right NOW, the Pentium M, contrary to what the media drones on about, does not have the raw number crunching power of the top P4 models. Don't get me wrong, it's an excellent processor, but I 'm a creative professional and crunching pixels in real time is what I'm after.
And Intel is not, as CNet says, using the Pentium M style for future stuff. Yes, it's creators in Israel have been called in for their doubtless brilliance in making the new DT processors more efficient and less like hot monsters. However, the dual core Pentium D will be two modified Prescott cores slapped onto one processor. Intel has invested too many optimisations for the P4 for it to quit now.
Anyway, have you seen many notebooks with RAID hard drives like the 7700s?
Oh, and not to mention the abysmal floating point performance of the Pentium M, and FP is the future for all applications.
And I'm updating to 660 as soon as I can, with my awaited MJ-12m 7700, to reduce thermal issues.
