Linux can run with virtually any hardware configuration, but it is best to check the system requirements for your Linux distro.

The Centrino Duo processor made by the company Intel has two cores. It is implied in the name "Duo" , which can be translated as "two", "double" or "twice".

Wel,u have the Intel p 1 and p2 p3 p4 then centrino and then core duo and then centrino duo then centrino duo core duo also u have the amd athlon whis is standard Now yow have Quad Core, I3, I5, I7 Processors

The main difference between the Intel Core 2 Duo blue stickers and the Intel Centrino Core 2 Duo pink stinkers is the wireless networking features. The Centrino offers more networking features than the non-Centrino.

The Intel Pentium 4 is an older desktop processor. "Centrino" is a label for systems that contain an Intel mobile chipset, wireless card, and processor. A "Centrino Duo" would thus be a system with a Core Duo processor.

Intel core duo and Intel centrino duo...both are one and the same thing. However Intel centrino core 2 duo (core 2) is the next generation with Two cores and higher processing speed touching 2 GHZ.

Intel Centrino Duo is used to refer to a package in laptops consisting of an Intel Core series processor, Intel Chipset, and Intel Wireless card.

Not by any means. The Intel Centrino Duo is more power efficient, cooler, and generally faster than a Pentium 4.

centrino has a faster processor but normally celerons have more ram space

Centrino platform was designed for laptops when Pentium for full scale desktops. As result Centrino consumes less power but less productive then Pentium.

There is little difference between Core 2 Core and Centrino Duo. Both are dual core processors but Core 2 is slightly better. Centrino is part of the Intel mobile platform.

Centrino is generally a lower-power CPU designed for lower power consumption for notebook computers. So if youre buying a laptop, and battery life is a big issue for you, go with the centrino. Otherwise, the core 2 duo is the way to go.

unless you have the highest end Pentium m processor, (its at 780 i think, 2.26ghz) the middle line duo is better, even if its rating, in gigahertz is less. after all, its just a number, in the real world when you and i run applications, usually more than one at a time, duo can multitask more efficiently.

The Centrino (who's dual-core variant is known as the Centrino Duo) is an Intel platform, consisting of an Intel Core Duo processor, an Intel Chipset, and Intel Integrated Wireless 802.11b/g. The Core Duo is a mobile processor that improves on the Pentium M. The Core 2 Duo is Intel's first chip based on the Core Microarchitecture. It boasts the highest x86 performance seen to date, with impeccable performance-per-watt metrics -- perfect for mobile platforms.

Centrino = better perfomance, less heat and less power consumption. The centrino is based on the newer Intel Conroe architecture.

Yes, but much slower than it would run Windows XP or a Linux distribution. Make sure your computer has at least 1GB of RAM to run Vista decently.

The Centrino 2 is a microprocessor manufactured by Intel. Designed for use in notebook computers, this processor was based on the Core 2 Duo architecture. It is now outdated.

Dual Core is better as it has two processing cores, Higher Clock Speed, Bigger FSB, Bigger Cache and it is built for multitasking but it does not mean that Centrino is bad as it is designed for NOTEBOOK Computer and does not give lower performance. Guy above me is wrong He asked about Centrino duo which IS a dual core. The Centrino platform is going to be a LOT faster than the Pentium Dual-Core. Centrino means you're getting a Core 2 Duo processor, Intel chipset, and Intel wireless. Core 2 Duo processors are much faster than Pentium Dual Core processors. These 2 guys above me are wrong... na just kidding i just really wanted to say that :D

"Centrino" is a branding used to refer to a computer equipped with an Intel processor, wireless card, and chipset. It does not refer to any particular processor.

The difference between a Pentium and a Centrino is that the Pentium and Core Duo, etc, are configured with the Centrino containing less capability and being marketed at a lower cost point than the Pentium branded product.

There is absolutely no difference. They are simply branded differently. A "Centrino" processor is any Pentium M, Core Solo, Core Duo, Core 2 Solo, Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, ore Core i7 coupled with an Intel chipset, wireless card, and integrated graphics.

Centrino is generally a single-core processor, as for Pentium Core 2 Duo, I believe you worded that incorrectly. You may be thinking of "Pentium D", which is a dual-core model of the Pentium 4 series of processors. You may also be referring to "Core 2 Duo", which is a newer line-up of Intel's dual core processors. The Core 2 Duo series is a lot more powerful than Pentium D, so I would recommend those.

intel just came out with the centrino duo which i believe are the fastest mobile processors right now
