Apart from there may be some difference between the Linux vs. XP VM, this is
likely because Pentium 4 and Pentium M are comppletely different
architectures, Pentium 4's IPC is uselessly low. In the article linked below,
the benchmark shows that P4 3.2Ghz (Prescott, 3200/133) is roughly equivalent
to Pentium-M 1.8 Ghz (Pentium-M 735 Dothan, 1800/100).
(there are more benchmarks in the other chapters)
