i think if you read the forums there is a way to get around it dropping to 800MGz on battery........
Go in and speak with the manager. Especially if you want the 7422GX, make mention of it. I made a point of the 2.0GHz on the item description sticker, and it only running 800MHz on battery.
BTW, I tried shutting off power mgmt in the power panel, I tried speedswitchXP, man, this thing switched to 800, and freaking STAYED there. Not a single budge. Sandra show it a bit slower than a P3/1Ghz at 800MHz. Sorry, but I'm not dropping $1400 for a P3/1Ghz.
Also, you could try calling 888-BEST-BUY and explaining it to them. I did that, and it kind of helped. They will email the manager an "exception form" although, it is still up to the manager to do it or not.
Biggest thing, is be REEEEALLY nice.
