Have you updated your Windows Experience Index? If so, then I'd suspect that Windows was reading the wrong info from the chip in Device Manager. Right click on one of the processors in Device Manager and select "Properties", then the Details tab. Scroll down through the list of details and locate both the "Friendly name" and the "Display name" - are they both listed as T7300?

Since it's a new system, I'd contact Sony for resolution about it (since they're the one's who hold your warranty). You may also want to contact Intel and/or Microsoft (I'd suspect that this is a Microsoft issue since it's seen correctly elsewhere in the OS) to see what they have to offer for solutions. This appears to be a problem that hasn't been experienced before and should probably raise some eyebrows there!
Have you tried uninstalling the CPU's from the Device Manager and then rebooting to let Windows reinstall them?
FWIW - the 2 major differences between the T7100 and the T7300 are the speed (1.8 gHz vs 2.0 gHz) and the L2 cache (the T7100 has 2 mB of cache while the T7300 has 4 mB of cache)
So, there appears to be an error in Device Manager that prevents proper detection of the CPU. If uninstalling and reinstalling the CPU doesn't fix it, then I'd suspect that it's safe to just live with it. I'll be checking the laptops at work for this issue when I get back to work on Monday - if I find anything further I'll post back here (you can set the Options in the upper right of this topic to "Track this topic" and you'll be able to get email notifications about any replies to it)
Please let us know what you decide to do - and how it gets resolved (if it does).
