The most likely correct answer, is that this laptop's processor runs at 1.9 Ghz in normal mode, increasing to 2.8 Ghz under Turbo Mode. The only way to know for sure is to buy the laptop to find out. The 1.5 Ghz to 2.4 Ghz specification may refer to an earlier processor type, with the newer upgrade having the faster speed.
However, although this laptop has a quad-core processor, they will only all run while in normal mode. When this laptop runs under Turbo Mode, only 2 or 3 cores can be active at a time, since at least one of the cores must be turned off to allow the other cores to run at the higher, Turbo Mode speed. For mutli-tasking and gaming, this is the best value laptop that you can buy for the money.
Create recovery disks as soon as possible, as although you can use the recovery software to recover your laptop to factory settings, this will be no good to you if you spill a drink on the keyboard, or have some other disaster.

I'm sure the HP Laptop Model No is :G62365EA.
In which case it has an AMD A8-4500M APU (Quad Core) - 1.9Ghz - 2.8Ghz (w/turbo core)
More Info: ♠♦♣♥
The AMD A8-4500M is a mobile quad-core processor based on the Trinity architecture. Officially introduced in Q2 2012, it is the direct successor to the Llano A-series of APUs (Accelerated Processing Unit). The processing unit is manufactured in 32nm SOI and integrates a 1.9 GHz CPU (up to 2.8 GHz w/ Turbo Core) with a relatively fast Radeon HD 7640G GPU alongside a dual-channel memory controller, video de- and encoders and a northbridge.
The CPU cores are based on a reworked Bulldozer architecture, called Piledriver. Although marketed as a quad-core processor, the A8-4500M includes only two modules with four integer-cores and two floating-point cores total. As a result, the CPU is not a true quad-core processor.
When compared to previous Bulldozer cores, AMD has managed to improve upon the IPC (instructions per clock) performance of Trinity cores while allowing for higher clock frequencies. However, when compared to its Llano predecessor, the multithreaded performance of Trinity has only been slightly improved. The enhanced Turbo Core 3.0 feature functions well in speeding up single threaded performance, although it is still not on the same level as Intel’s Turbo Boost equivalent. Regardless, AMD has managed to include other features as well, such as the AVX extension (including FMA) and support for AES encryption.
In terms of raw general performance, the A8-4500M performs similar to the Llano-based A8-3500M. Single-threaded workloads can especially benefit from the new architecture and the updated Turbo Core functionality. If compared to Intels Core-i3-series, the A8-4500M offers less performance in most cases. Nonetheless, CPU performance from the AMD processor should be sufficient for all daily workloads like Office, Internet browsing and even light video editing or gaming.
The integrated DirectX 11-compatible Radeon HD 7640G offers only 256 shader cores of the Trinity chip (7660G: 384) and, thanks to Turbo Core, will operate anywhere between 497 to 686 MHz depending on the current application demand. On average, the performance of the HD 7640G GPU is comparable to a dedicated Radeon HD 7610M and is even faster than the HD Graphics 4000 as found in Intel’s Ivy Bridge.
The power consumption of the A8-4500M APU is rated at 35 Watt TDP and is therefore comparable to mid-range dual-core Ivy Bridge processors. Consequently, the A8-4500M is best suited for 14-inch notebooks or larger.
