Any benchmarks for older mobile CPUs?

I recently purchased a laptop that includes a Pentium 3 1.2GHz Tutalin and I was looking at possibly throwing a Via C3 1GHz chip into it to reduce power of the CPU.

Does anyone have a comparison of these two or something similar? What the laptop will be used for is SD Movies, Browsing, Music, and possibly starcraft.

There's no comparison between a 1.2Ghz Tualatin and a 1Ghz Via C3, at least as far as performance goes. The P3 will eat the Via for breakfast, and still be hungry. The C3 will have better battery life, though.;) A $350 6-cell netbook would have been my first choice, if I were you.
