Navigate to System/Library/CoreServices/Loginwindow Right Click LoginWindow and choose Show Packages /Contents/Resources/english.lproj/AboutThisMac.Strings


Open with TextWrangler.




"ABOUT_BOX_LICENSE_AGREEMENT" = "License Agreement";

"ABOUT_BOX_MEMORY_FIELD_FORMAT" = "4 GB Silicon Power DDR3-1333"; Here change Memory






"ABOUT_BOX_SINGLE_PROCESSOR_FIELD_FORMAT" = "2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo"; Here change Processor

Most likely it is a cosmetic issue. It can be set to display the correct value (or the value you want to see) via SMBIOS.plist keys. Editing AboutThisMac.Strings is certainly not the best idea.


Please also check the BIOS settings i.e. what RAM speed is set there.
