Puget posts a few comments to a review of one of their Pentium M based gaming PCs which was featured by the holiday issue of Maximum PC Magazine. They also posted some gaming benchmarks.
In addition to demonstrating a unique cooling solution, we wanted to make a bold statement that a Pentium M computer can make a great gaming machine. Why is that important? When you're serious about making your computer quiet, heat becomes a very real issue, and the low heat output of a Pentium M comes in very handy! But how does it perform?

This is the point we wanted to make, and the point that the review completely missed. Just take a look at the graphs below (our Pentium M system is the blue bar at the top).
