As far as I know Pentium M was designed to be less power consumption compared to Pentium 4. So ur battery will last longer. But Pentium 4 is still faster.

Correct. Processors designed for mobile computing use lower voltages than their desktop based counterparts in order to preserve battery life. Lower voltages also reduce performance. Unplugging from a wall socket will further decrease performance, but if you're sticking with web surfing, e-mail and word processing, you won't notice any significant slowdown.
