You have choosen the right processor.  Battery lasts more than previous, it's 
powerfull (mine's 1,3Ghz but is far faster than my "old" P3-M-1,2Ghz), and 
works very cold.

All Centrino computers have:
1. Pentium-M
2. Chipset intel 855
3. Wireless from Intel (no driver for linux afaik)

Mine's cheap, robust and linux friendly: Acer Travelmate 290.  You can read 
more info in a web page I've posted my experiences about linux & TM290:


Hope that helps  ;)
