Well, whereas it might just be the system abbreviating a value, the difference between 2.6 and 2.66 would literally be something around 0.06GHz, which I suppose works out to something like 61.44KHz if you multiply 0.06 by 1024, etc., but no it wouldn't make a really noticeable difference in terms of actual performance nowadays.

Also, sometimes things like this might have to do with the internal architecture since, for example, while my work laptop officially has something like 4Gb of physically installed memory/ram, the installation of windows XP, 32 bit had on it, only saw 2.5Gb memory as such.

But the system properties dialogue, accessed by pressing windows key and
the pause key, shows 2.66 ghz, not 2.6.
Is there a difference?

Generally 266MHz is 266 megahertz, where 2.6 would generally be GHz -
gigahertz, where a giga is 1024 times a mega.

Old school computer science was based on something like:
1 bit times 8 = 1 byte, times 1024 = 1 kilobyte, times 1024 = 1 megabyte

times 1024 = 1 gigabyte, times 1024 = 1 terabyte, etc. etc.

Kilo is times 1000 in the real world, and times 1024 in computers, a
mega is
the equivalent of a million, but equals 1024 times 1024 in computers
etc.
etc.

Also remember that the difference between 1Kb and 1KB is the difference
between a kilobit and a kilobyte, and the same applies to MB and Mb
)check
case sensitivity), but those differences are mostly applied to either
speeds, or audio track bitrates/quality.
