I just purchased a new Gateway laptop and I ordered a 2.4 ghz machine. When it came it was a 1.4ghz
in the system properties. Gateway is telling me that because of this new mobile centrino technology the machine is actually a 2.4 ghz even though it does not say that in system properties. Can anyone tell
me if that is true?

Centrino is basically a fancy word for dynamic on Intel processors.

That is to say, if there is no demand for processor power at the moment, it just won't bother running at 2.4Ghz and instead runs at a slower speed in order to save battery life.
