Hi guys, I’m new here but I do have an issue to get your attention. On late October of this year, I was cleaning out my basement and I found my old laptop notebook. It is a Toshiba Satellite 1605CDS. I remember that was a present from my Father when he when on a business trip to the USA about 6 years ago. I had stop using that PC because the keyboard on the system was broken and it only had 32MB of RAM. However, I thought if I can upgrade this PC, I can use it as an internet firewall. So I ran the CPU-Z test on it.
The CPU-Z reads the computer as a AMD-K6 500MHz. At 100MHz Bus and 5x multiplier. However, when I open the Laptop, I found out that the CPU is actually an overclocked 450MHz AMD-K6.
I’m not really upset by this finding, but it got me thinking. Toshiba is a really large and suppose to be an honest company. If they are dealing with such scrupulous things as overclocked laptop 6 years ago, what unspeakable scrupulous things are they dealing in now?
this might not have been a toshiba issue more as a independent vendor issue.
