    Yes, the highly-optimized architecture of the Pentium-M allows it to run at speeds equivalent to those of Pentium 4s with much higher clock speeds. For a complete comparison of Pentium-M chips to their Pentium 4 equivalents, check out my FAQ (in my signature; also stickied at the top of the "Hardware" board).

    Yep, all the AMD processors and the Intel Pentium M do more work per clock cycle therefore their performance is higher for a lower clock speed.
