It all depends on two things.

1. what you are going to use it for.

2. who much you are willing to spend.

Centrino's not a processor.

 

It's a marketing term (circa 2003) for a set of core technologies: Pentium M processor [which means low core voltage: less heat, less power consumption, longer battery life], Intel 855 chipset, and Intel Pro/Wireless. For a laptop to be Centrino, it has to have all three. It's a good thing.

it doesn't really matter anymore (only to people like me). get what you can afford and offers you the most extensibility for your money (like # of usb ports, # of card slots, warranty, screen resolution, the list goes on).

Before I get flamed, I'm not going to edit my previous post.

 

Here are my favorite laptops, in order:

Apple's biggest Powerbook (:P)

IBM Thinkpad

Toshiba Satellite Pro (or the high-end Tecras)

Gateway (I know GW used to be whack, -- but I'm referring to the high end widescreen ones with glossy screens, they're leet)

I'm on my third Sony Vaio laptop and have been extremely happy with all three. On two occasions, I've had problems which were hardware situations and in both cases, Sony immediately sent me prepaid FedEx shipping cartons, along with a prepaid FedEx form. My laptops were sent to their repair facility in California. Both times, my laptops were returned via FedEx within three days and in perfect working condition.

Yea, if you don't mind Mac. Go with a Powerbook, awesome laptops, and probably the best. Toshiba Satellite Pro are very good too.
