    What the hell is a Pentium Centurion?

    You mean Celeron?

    Centrino isn't a CPU, btw, it's a set of technologies.

    Pentium 4 - Designed for desktops and desktop replacement's
    1.3GHz up to 3.4GHz so far.
    Celeron - Designed for desktops
    Pentium 4 Mobile - designed for notebooks
    Pentium mobile(commonly refered to as Centrino, but centrino is a design set, not just a cpu) - lower voltage and clock speeds than the the Pentium 4, but double the L2 cache. The Ultimate notebook CPU IMO.
    Celeron M - Same idea as the Pentium M, lower clock speed and lower voltage with extra cache to make up for it.

    3.6GHz :p with a jump to 3.73 and 3.8 soon -- no plans to go to 4GHz, however.

    And don't forget the Celeron D. I would never own a celeron, but the Celeron D (I call it the delery) is a great chip!

    And The Pentium/Celeron M chips don't have extra cache "to make up for it". They are low-ipc chips (like the AMD chips, ironically) where they have a lower clock, but do more work per clock.
