I also have a question about my new HP dm1 w/ E-450. I just upgraded from an atom based netbook cuz i wanted a bit more speed but I'm finding this dm1 is slower! I ran CPU-Z and it says my processor is running around 830mhz give or take with a multiplier of 8. I have a E-450 processor which claims 1.65 ghz. The processor is almost always running at 100%. I streamed netflix and it could barely keep up, often lagging behind in fact, and the only other program i had running at the time was Skype. Everyone raves about the graphics capabilities of these AMD processors but I'm rather dissappointed so far. I'm new at this, know little about dual core or playing with processor speeds, but does this mean I'm only running on one core? I have no idea how to fix it, I just transferred all my stuff on this and don't want to send this to HP to get a new one, but if its broke I guess I have no choice. Any ideas how to open this puppy up? Would appreciate any help!
Solarstarshines, it seems we have the same processor, your speed seems to be double mine and running much cooler, any tips on how to achieve better performance on mine? Here's mine
