A centralized SCM is definitely a useful model in some circumstances, although it's detractors will usually point out that it's a subset of what the decentralized SCMs can do.

I'd also point out that Subversion is much nicer than CVS to use on a disconnected laptop, not requiring network connection for things like "svn diff" and "svn status", which I find quite useful.

CVS was just a "good enough" SCM that had some horrible problems. At least, Subversion makes it unnecessary to consider using CVS.
