Centrino vs anything else? Where does it stand?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm a bit unsure about laptop/notebook processors other than the fact that a dual-core > celeron.

Where would a Centrino processor stand? For some reason, I'm thinking Centrino is just a newer or notebook version of the celeron. Am I way off?

Anyways, I'm asking because my brother in law has a ~1.8ghz centrino with nvidia video. Decent sized screen, 1 gig of ram, and a wireless card for $175.

Do you think it's worth the buy?

Also, other than web, chat, an occasional word document, I mainly plan on using it for road trips to pass time, I already have a desktop that can handle the heavy stuff. I'm getting the Sprint unlimited internet service and wanna play some WoW on it at school and on the road, I don't mind playing on near minimum settings either, besides screen res. Think that'll be ok without being unplayable or annoyingly playable?
