Reference information

1 Power management reduces processor speed when in battery mode.

2 The V.90 modem can receive data at up to 56 Kbps from a compatible service provider and transmit data at up to 31.2 Kbps. Public networks currently limit maximum download speeds to about 53 Kbps. Actual speeds depend on many factors and are often less than the maximum possible.

3 Public network download speeds are limited to 53 Kbps. Upload speeds are limited to 48 Kbps for V.92 modems. Actual speeds depend on many factors and are often less than the maximum possible. V.92 functions and speeds require a compatible phone line and server equipment, and download of a V.92 support device driver when available. Check with your telephone and Internet service providers for availability.

4 GB equals one billion bytes when referring to HDD. Accessible capacity is less. Up to 4 GB is service partition.

5 Included software may differ from its retail version (if available), and may not include user manuals or all program functionality. License agreements may apply.

6 11a, 11b, and 11g wireless are based on IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. An adapter with 11b/g or 11a/b/g can communicate on any of these formats; the actual connection is based on the access point to which it connects.

7 Expandable to up to 2 GB of system memory. Memory options up to 1 GB SO DIMMs each can be added in the two available slots for memory expansion. To get the maximum 2 GB to which memory can be expanded, replace the standard card with a 1 GB and add another 1 GB card in the extra slot.

8 Thickness may vary at certain points on the system.

9 For combination drives, maximum speeds are given in the following order: CD-R, CD-RW, CD, and DVD.

10 CD and DVD drives list maximum rates: rates are variable and are often less than the maximum.
