Pentium M and Mobile Pentium 4 are two completely different processors.
Pentium M is based on Pentium III core, and therefore way faster at
same frequency than Pentium 4, while drawing less power (longer battery

fastest Pentium M processors run at 2.26GHz (which is actually faster
than that Pentium 4 at 2.8 GHz you have).
