I'm at a bit of a loss here - I've got the 2.16ghz processor, but XP reports the running speed @ 2.4ghz.
Is this... bad? I'd never think about overclocking a laptop processor, only because of the complete lack of cooling.

My Parallels does something similar (shows 2.0ghz and 1500mhz) - I think because it is a virtual machine, it works out a PR rating and then estimates the speed. I wouldn't count on this to reflect the actual clock speed. You might find playing with the VM acceleration settings changes the 2nd figure.
