Windows 7 reporting wrong CPU

I got a mini pc from best buy and it reads Intel Pentium E2210 2.20GHz i'm like ok this fits my needs. I install some computer specs software mainy CPU-Z,Speccy and Windows 7 index.
It reads Intel Pentium E5400 2.70GHz. I'm not mad at this after all more GHz. It's just weird did best buy give me the right box but not the right computer? lol

Download HWInfo32 from the drivers guide in my sig and post a screenshot of the system summary screen. Search for snip in the start menu.

Type system into start/search and hit Enter. It will tell you what's on the system. You can also run Belarc advisor.
