The Pentium-4 machines don't mention being Mobile CPUs, they might be
desktop ones.

At least the centrino model lacks a scroll help.

For both models, if you upgrade it to the usual standard of DVD/CD-RW,
40 GB harddisk and comparable CPU to other offerings you come out more
expensive even without the Windoze license.

They don't have a moderate 3-year warranty, either the almost useless
one or a full-blown thing for $750.

Detail mess like this made me bail out of getting myself a notebook as
a christmas present.  Short of $2000 I didn't find anything without a
major nitpick.

 No warranty.    This email is probably produced by one of my cats
