	Pentium 4 M is the mobile version of a Pentium 4 and capable of speed step.
	Pentium M is a complete new processor and not a mobile version of any other. Indeed it is based on the Pentium 3 layout (but only based ;) ).
	Centrino is no processor at all. Centrino is the name for a hardware bundle:
	 - Intel Pentium M (no Pentium 4!)
	 - Intel Chipset (with or without onboard graphic)
	 - Intel Wireless-LAN adapter
	If one of this partsis missing on a system it must not be called Centrino (that's Intel politics).
	I hope i could achieve clarification. This discussions are seen anywhere and many don't really know the diferences ;)
