Ok, I notices a lot of them on laptops are like 1.6 or 1.8 upto 2.0Ghz. Now my question is this. How dose a laptop or computer use this speed?

Dose it have a 1.6hz+1.6Ghz = 3.2Ghz?

or how dose this work?

Dual core laptops are the same as dual core desktops. It has two cores, each running at the same speed. Each core can work on different processes at the same time. Both cores cannot work on the same process (until reverse hyperthreading...). 2.0+2.0=2.0.

Those requirements are probably for a 1.5ghz Netburst CPU (e.g. Pentium4).
A 1.6ghz Core 2 Duo is equivalent to ~3.2ghz Pentium 4
and 2.0ghz Core 2 Duo is ~4.0ghz Pentium 4.
All calculations found using CPU Speed Converter v2.0.
