OEM = original equipment manufacturer.

Wiki is a good source for this.

Athlon = product line

64 = 64 bit processor

X2 = 2 cores (I think)

4800+ = specific model. The bigger the number the faster the processor

I believe:

AMD Manufacturer
Athlon Model name
64 64-bit processor
X2 This processor has 2 cores
4800+ Model number
Socket AM2 CPU socket type (the socket on the logic board)
(2.5GHz) Running frequency
L2 Cache 1MB 1MB cache; a larger cache allows for more queuing, larger caches = ever so slightly faster processors)
OEM This was designed for distribution with a computer and not for end-user install, doesn’t make a difference really
Processor It’s a processor
