Fun to pick over too...
for example, if you don't know your actual chip number (processor) and were given a new system, how would you know how much your cache is? My daughter was given a very slightly used computer (about 1 month old) and I have no idea how to find out this info. This particular system is a centrino 1.5 (when I looked in the system info, it said centrino 1.5) which can be either the 715 or 705, which are 2 mb and 1 mb cache, respectively. I don't know how to find this information. On my laptop, it is a 1.6 which is a 2 mb. I recieved that info from the manufacturer. thanks for answering a somewhat stupid question. If I could either find out the chip # or the cache, I'd be happy.
