Creating an HP laptop on their site, i have two questions

CPU: What does (3.2GHz/2.3GHz) or (3.0GHz/2/6GHz) mean? I dont know why there are two different GHz numbers for the same CPU

Harddrive options are:

500GB 5400RPM
750GB 5400RPM
750GB 7200 rpm Hybrid Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection

With the first two, i can also get a 32GB mSSD HardDrive Acceleration Cache. With the option "750GB 7200 rpm Hybrid Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection" It won't let me get the SSD added because they don't work together. Which should I do? I don't get why i cant get the 7200rpm and the SSD

Thank you!

Hello Jvas,
You probably can't get the SSD and the HDD because there is only one hard drive bay, mSata is a much smaller drive.

As for your CPU question? Is it an Intel CPU? It looks weird, but it may be HP's way of showing you the base speed, and the speed with Turbo boost. Turbo boost is technology that Intel includes on their processors that allows them to speed up much faster than their base speed when extra performance is needed- and go back to lower clock speed when your idling, this helps with battery life, along with heat.

Good luck,
