Which would be the quietest?

I want to buy the quietest laptap I can. Desktop replacement or a mobile? Mobile chip or say, Pentium 4?

I'm short of space so hence a laptop. Also I will just be using it at home for research, email, word processsing. No games. So does not have to be especially powerful I guess.

What would be the quietest? Thanks in advance.

As a rule of thumb: The faster the chip the noisier the cooling fan. Pentium mobile Centrino notebooks are plenty powerful for everything but latest games and pretty quiet too. Dell Latitude are pretty good - wife has one - and can be had for around £700
