    Hello all,

    I'm trying to decide between two laptops. One had a Pentium 4 2.6GHz with
    Hyper-Threading Technology (and a 15.1 inch screen) and the other has a
    Pentium M 1.5GHz (and a 15.4 inch wide screen).

    If I'm trying to compare speed/performance what would the 1.5GHz Pentium M
    translate into if you were comparing to the equivalent in a Pentium 4 with

    The unit with the 15.4 wide screen and the Pentium M 1.5GHz is a little more
    expensive so I wanted to see what you guys thought in terms of performance.

    Thanks in advance...

    Comparing a M to a non-M, you should check the specs for battery life
    if that matters; ISTR that the M has better power-saving.

    Many apps do not take advantage of HT. Try to find out if the key apps
    you use have been recoded for HT. (I don't have a list, so don't ask.)
