Pentium M vs Pentium 4-M

They are different. Quite fundamentally different. The Pentium M, Celeron M, "Centrino", Dothan is a completely different chip to the Pentium 4-M - the Pentium M at 1.8ghz is roughly equivalent in speed to a 2.8ghz Pentium 4, but uses about 21 watts, whereas the Pentium 4 uses around 80 watts! The Pentium 4-M uses considerably more watts than a Pentium M, but is significantaly slower than the Pentium M. The Pentium 4-M is based on the crappy Pentium 4, the Pentium M is not! There is regular confusion (especially on ebay!) and people think the Pentium 4-M is the same as the Pentium M, they are not the same.

Thankfull, Intel provide a CPU information page:

You simply put in the CPU code ie: SL7EM brings up a Pentium M 2.0ghz CPU etc. If you enter SL6FH, you get details of the Pentium 4-M. They are not compatible, you can not put a Pentium 4-M in a Pentium M motherboard and vice versa, without an adapter, and even then, there are pretty strict requirements.

Core Solo and Core Duo (Yonah) are sons of the Pentium M line. The Pentium 4 line is slowly going to be fazed out and Dell will be switching over to Pentium M based systems in November in desktop machines... the Pentium 4 is crap (too hot, too power hungry) and is finally going to be put out of it's misery. Hoorah!

Indigo Drink - Energy that's a little bit fruity.

Apparently it's an energising Peach and Lemon fruit juice drink with Guarana, Ginseng and Caffiene, however, it seems to just taste purple and sugary to me. Maybe there's a hint, a slight tiny hint of Peach in there? Contains Water, Glucose Fructose Syrup, Fruit juices (10%), Sugar, Taurine, Flavourings (Guarana, Ginseng, Peach, Caffiene), Salt!. And 25mg or caffiene / 100mls! Although this is around the same as instant coffee , so presumably nothing to worry about.
