In my opinion, this would require less fans which means less noise and power. I would be able to leave a server on fulltime without worrying about power consumption or noise. Any input?

The centrino was designed specifically for use in mobile applications, so I doubt they would ever make a desktop version. They would probably have to make changes to it to make it work, and you dont see pentium 4-m desktop chips, even though there basically undervolted pentium 4s.

Surely there is no technical reason that a pentium-m (note the difference from a pentium-4m) which is the cpu part of the centrino "chip-group" couldn't be used in a desktop-style machine. But Intel may not look favorably on such an undertaking for their own short-sighted marketing reasons.
