I think the Centrino is the one to go for. The machine with the Centrino also has an extra 20GB of hard disk space which would be handy. Plus it also has firewire and S-Video ports which I did want but could have lived without.
The Centrino runs much cooler. I think it would probably last longer. However I agree that you shouldn't worry so much about processor speed and pay more attention to HD speed.
