simo: Some PC laptops with desktop processors are hardwired to run at half the processor's frequency when on batteries, but I can't speak for them all. I'm not aware of any PC laptop with a mobile (M) processor that cannot be persuaded via software to run at any of the allowed frequencies, whether on batteries or mains.
