Centrino 400Hz FSB 512RAM etc but I ran Belarc software on it and the =
processor is shown on the output as being a 600Mhz Pentium M.

This is my first laptop and I was expecting to see a 1.7Mhz processor is =
this correct or have I been taken for a ride. Is there something about =
Pentium M processors that would show this speed if someone out there =
with a nc6000 could reassure me that all is well it would be very much =


Re: HP NC6000 Processor Speed

I don't believe there is such a thing as a 600Mhz Pentium M. Belarc may
be reporting the CPU speed IN EFFECT at the time you ran it.

Some CPUs have the capability of running at less than full power, with
the intention of prolonging battery life. If under Control Panel >
Power Options you select Portable or Maximum Battery, for example, then
the power cutting technology comes into effect. Try seting something
other than these options and then check the CPU speed.
