Celeron vs Celeron-M

Can anyone explain or point me to a site which compares performance of the Celeron with the Celeron-M.  Intel don't seem to want to release any comparative figures.

I know that the Centrino technology gives more power per clock cycle, but don't know if any of this applies to the -M.

The reason I ask is that I have had a batch of faulty laptops which were Celeron 2.6GHz and the manufacturer has agreed to swap them for a similar spec machine but which has a Celeron-M 1.3GHz processor (but not Centrino).

Here's an article that should clear up all your questions: http://www4.tomshardware.com/mobile/20040309/index.html

Basically, the Celeron-M is the Pentium-M with less cache, and no SpeedStep capability.

I'm sorry, but that doesn't help me (maybe I'm being thick, and I'm sure someone will tell me).  That doesn't actually give me relative performance comparisons.

A Celeron-M is a little less powerful than a Pentium-M, and a Pentium-M 1.3 is about equivalent to a P4 2.4: http://www.cpuid.com/PentiumM/index.php

Since a P4 is always faster than the same clocked Northwood Celeron (http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/20020903/index.html), that would mean a Celeron-M is significantly faster than the same clocked Northwood Celeron.
