I was just looking at various computers on newegg.com (since I am in the market for a laptop computer right now), and I came upon this one.
What puzzled me was the processor's clock speed, which I confirmed here. Of course I am well aware of the fact that the clock speed of a processor is only one of the factors that go into its overall speed and quality (other factors include pipelining, parallelism, caching, out-of-order execution, speculative execution, branch prediction, yada yada yada yada...etc.), but for what purpose did Intel lower the clock speed on this thing when the norm these days is anywhere between 2 and 3 GHz? Is there some amazing improvement in its architecture that they could do that/needed to do that?
Another Wikipedia article states: "At the time of its release at the Intel Developer Forum on September 23, 2009, Clarksfield processors were significantly faster than any other laptop processor."
