My laptop Has a Mobile Pentium 4 M CPU 2.40ghz and a friend of myn has a a laptop with a 2.80ghz dekstop cpu.
What is the difference between a desktop cpu and a laptop cpu?

Mobile processors generally have a lower clock speed, use less power, run cooler, have power saving modes, have larger cache memories (to make them perform faster).

Overall this means they are much more suited to laptops, particularly when running on the battery.
