Reference information

1 GHz only measures microprocessor internal clock speed, not application performance. Many factors affect application performance.

2 GB equals 1,000,000,000 bytes when referring to HDD or memory capacity; actual capacity may be different.

3 Maximum memory may require replacement of standard memory with optional maximum memory modules.
