Yes, I have been wondering the same thing..... by M you mean mobile processor right?

The Pentium M is basically just an all around better chip with both better performance and efficiency as shown in this comparison graph i found on google: Pentium M Comparison (http://www.intel.com/technology/itj/2003/volume07issue02/art03_pentiumm/figures/figure12_big.jpg)

From what i saw, the 'M' in Pentium M stands for "mobile", and considering that the Centrino came out very recently, which i believe is Pentium's only mobile chip, I doubt they have come out with another, so I believe it is safe to assume that Pentium M = Centrino, it's something to look up, try Google (http://www.google.com). :)

I like laptops. They're convenient, and you can hide them under the bed. My laptop has wireless capability built into it, but I don't know how to use it at hotspots. I need an account don't I?

Depends where it is. I know some gaming LAN's just let you choose an I.P, and you're connected. Others require access, using username and password. So depends where you are. :)

So is there somewhere in WinXP that I can select to search for a hotspot? That is, say I know I'm at one, how do I tell the laptop to use it?
