First, you could start by not cross-posting to three different mailing
lists. Then, change the power-saving settings that you have in the
system's bios. Laptops do not always run at their rated clock speed. Doing
so would have a significant negative impact on the system's battery life.
As such, plugging in your laptop before the system posts, will likely
yield a Mhz guestimate much closer to what you were expecting.
