Problem with speed of AMD athlon xp 1500+ sony vaio

I thought my system was supposed to run at 1.33 Ghz, but when I click on system information in the control panel, it says 494 Mhz.. Any ideas?

Chances are the laptop is just throttling down the CPU speed to conserve power and heat. It's normal. When you launch intensive apps the CPU speed should crank up.
