    I think the bold makes it clear. :rolleyes:
    The underlines: SR runs around 800MHz so it is telling you it is running at 790MHz.

    Its called speedstep. Its an intel laptop technology that downclocks your processor when you're not using it to save battery life. If it needs the processor speed, it will use it.

    Take note that your front side bus can clock down to conserve power.

    It's not. Must be a buggy/incorrect reading or something similar.
