(you know I'm geting narked off at firefox, every time I accidentally hit my nav buttons on my mouse my commend disapears)

I'm not going to believe anything I hear about Pentium M/Centrino's Mips/Watt figures, since after 30 minutes of searching I find absolutely nothing apart from brags about how there 'high', but I don't really have any worries that the Pentium M will cut into ARM's market share in the hand-held devices front, but it might pinch Transmeta a bit, who currently sit on the sub-notebook area and look to take a portion of any Tablet PC's which come out (would be nice to get X-Scales in a few wouln't it)

I suspect however that ARM's are stuck on low-power devices forever and the only viable option to turn RISC OS into a powerful platform operating system would be to migrate to PPC , x86 wouln't present any comercial opertunities for other markets of the system board and IA64/etc are all rather expensive and dificult to implement.
