A mobile processor is a CPU designed to save power. Mostly it is used in notebook computers. See notebook processor. A notebook processor is a CPU optimized for notebook computers. All computing devices require a CPU. One of the main characteristics differentiating notebook processors from other CPUs is low-power consumption. The notebook processor is becoming an increasing important market segment in the semiconductor industry. Notebook computers are an increasingly popular format of the broader category of mobile computers. The objective of a notebook computer is to provide the performance and functionality of a desktop computer in a portable size and weight. Low power consumption is a primary consideration in the choice of a notebook processor. * AMD: Turion 64 * Transmeta: Crusoe and Efficeon * Intel: Centrino, Pentium M, Core Duo and the budget Celeron M * Freescale Semiconductor makes the PowerPC processors used in the non-Intel Apple Computer notebooks. Cell phones and PDAs require microcontrollers that use even less power than notebook processors.

Is the Intel Celeron M worth 80 more than the AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core processor?

Possibly. Mobile processors are typically much more expensive than their desktop counterparts, so if you are trying to compare an Intel mobile processor to a desktop AMD processor, you will quickly get confused. Within the mobile market, Intel processors are much more power efficient and generate less heat. That, not raw performance, is the driving force in mobile computing. Now, if you are looking into a desktop computer, the AMD Athlon 64 is probably a better choice, both for performance and the fact that you can't use a mobile processor in a desktop without an adapter.
