According to wikipedia:

"Centrino is a platform marketing initiative from Intel for a particular
combination of CPU, mainboard chipset and wireless network interface in
the design of a laptop personal computer."

I think the CPU is certainly 686, but that doesn't help you much when
setting the optimal CPU to compile the kernel for:

386
486
586/K5/5x86/6x86/6x86MX
Pentium-Classic
Pentium-MMX
Pentium-Pro
Pentium-II/Celeron(pre-Coppermine)
Pentium-III/Celeron(Coppermine)/Pentium-III Xeon
Pentium M
Pentium-4/Celeron(P4-based)/Pentium-4 M/Xeon
K6/K6-II/K6-III
Athlon/Duron/K7
Opteron/Athlon64/Hammer/K8
Crusoe
Efficeon
Winchip-C6
Winchip-2
Winchip-2A/Winchip-3
GeodeGX1
Geode GX/LX
CyrixIII/VIA-C3
VIA C3-2 (Nehemiah)


In this case it sounds like Pentium M or Pentium4 M.
