SubjectRe: Who ate my BogoMIPS?!
the mobile pentium III's will operate at 500mhz when disconnected from
power in order to conserve the battery unless you disable this
functionality in the bios(which yoou can do at the expense of some
battery life)...

you should see the lower bogomips result when booting without the laptop
connected to ac power...
