Below is info copied from its system info:

Acer Device Manager
Computer - ACPI Multiprocessor PC
Disk drives - SSDPAMM0008G1
Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz
Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz
WindowsXP service pack 3
Intel AtomCPU N270 @1.60GHz1.60GHz, 0.98 GB of RAM
ACA AOA1101588 Netbook with WindowsXP.

Note the two processors from system info device manager:

Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz
Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz

Two processors are also shown in task manager. Why are there two? Doesn't that cost more than one? Are the two working at cross purposes? Are they using the operating system inefficiently. Can the OS even handle two processors? What about the apps?
System performance is SLOW!

1. How many processors are there?
2. If one, why are TWO shown?
