    A Few Questions....

    1. What is the difference between the Centrino and Pentium M processors??

    2. What are they referring too when the call the Centrino wireless?? Does it have an integrated Wi-Fi or something???

    3. OK, probably a stupid question, but I have built myself a REALLY nice desktop relativly cheap, can the same thing be done with laptops or are HD, RAM and now recently Video cards the only truely upgradable parts of a laptop??

    4. Are there any sites that sell good uptodate laptops for under a $1000??? New or refurbished, it don't matter much The reason I ask is cause my dad used to buy refurbished year old laptops from somewhere for around $500, but its was awhile back and don't remember from where

    Thanks
