I've upgraded the Laptop to Windows 10 Home. I've noticed that the CPU speed drops to .99GHz-1.7GHz whenever applications are running. However, when sitting idle, it will throttle up to almost 2.4GHz (what?). I noticed this when editing a video clip. I know this unit is not a video editing unit but it can do light editing of small video clips. CPU dropped to as low as .99GHz during the render and never got any higher than 1.6-7GHz. Then I noticed it does this on any tasks I run, using Windows Media Player, surfing the web, installing software, copying files, etc. What gives? CPU cycles up when I stop doing anything and just watch the CPU performance. It's an AMD6 Quad, not a high speed CPU but with the turbo feature, it should do better cause when I do my editing, it's hard to swallow that pill that it does not throttle up but throttles down and it doesn't matter if it's plugged-in or AC power. Temps stay somewhere between 41c-53c.
