Reference information

1 With Intel SpeedStep, processor speed may be reduced to conserve battery power.

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 compatible phone line and server equipment, and download of V.92 support device driver when available. Check with your telephone and Internet service providers for availability.

4 Wireless upgradable models may be wireless-enabled with the addition of an optional wireless LAN mini-PCI card. These systems are designed to operate only with wireless LAN mini-PCI options sold by IBM.

5 Includes battery and optional travel bezel instead of standard optical drive in Ultrabay, if applicable; weight may vary depending on vendor components, manufacturing process, or options.

6 11a, 11b, and 11g wireless are based on IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. An adapter with 11 a/b or 11/a/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 1.0 GB of system memory. Memory options up to 512 MB SDRAM SO DIMMs each can be added in the two available slots for memory expansion. To get the 1 GB maximum memory, replace the standard 256 MB module with a 512 MB card and add another 512 MB card in the extra slot.

8 Thickness may vary at certain points on the system.

9 Variable read rate. Actual playback speed will vary and is often less than the maximum possible.

10 For storage, MB equals 1 million bytes, GB equals 1 billion bytes, and TB equals 1 trillion bytes when referring to the HDD. Accessible capacity may vary. Up to 3 GB is used in service partition. Maximum internal HDD capacities may require the replacement of any standard HDDs and the population of all HDD bays with the largest currently supported drives available.
