well, all centrino machines are pentium 3 based. i really don't see the
problem, with this machine. my 1.86 pentium-m is about as fast as a p3
since pd is single-threaded, it wouldn't profit from hyper-threading,
but that would even limit pd's performance. imho, the pentium-m is the
best platform to run pd on, at the moment...

but, if you post your problems, maybe we can get it running ...

cheers ... tim
