I have recently purchesd a HP pavillian laptop all works well :but i am a little puzzled as its a 1.8 ghz,however when i opent properties on my computer the speed is 500 mhz after two or three openings the figure goes to 1.8ghz
does anyone know why this is so?

I think you will find the cpu increases/decreases power when its needed,all to do with extending the battery life.
