I have a 1.6Ghz Core Duo (not Core 2 Duo) on a laptop, and SL recognizes it as "800Mhz Core 2 Duo".
Performance is not good overall, and I think is something related to this. This fix works for it?

Install Chameleon 2.0 RC5. Search for iFabio's Chameleon installer thread.

You need to read the first post again: http://www.insanelym...howtopic=189562

Some apps look at your CPU model/family to determine whether they can be installed and run on your Hackintosh. If they see a CPU that never shipped in an Apple computer, or "CPU unknown" they will refuse to run.

Your patched kernel (which you must use since your CPU is not supported by the Apple kernel) or your bootloader "fakes" your CPU automatically - single core CPUs are set as Core Solo, dual core CPUs as Core 2 Duo and quad core CPUs as quad core Xeon.

This is a feature, not a bug.
