Hi

I am looking at possibly purchasing the below laptop. Can anyone advise on the processor speed!!! Ist it 1.7ghz or 2.7ghz!?

How does the 'Turbo' come in to effect?

Toshiba Satellite S50D Notebook, 15.6" AMD® Quad-Core Processor, 1GB AMD® HD Radeon™ Graphics Card, 6GB Memory, 750GB Hard Drive

1.7GHz/2.7GHz Turbo

Thanks!

Under light load the CPU will run at 1.7GHz, when there is greater demand placed on the CPU it will ramp-up to 2.7GHz, to give extra performance when needed but, minimise power consumption the rest of the time.
