The only things that I have some doubt is the wireless support.
There may be also a need to go with ACPI (some of centrino platform
use now a legacy free BIOS). And there may be a need to upgrade
XFree (but that is a general though about new video chipsets).
A little note, though. A centrino processor do not exist. It is
a Pentium-M, aka Banias, and performance states (aka changing
frequency/voltage) is supported under Linux.
