1 Power management features may reduce processor speed when in battery mode.
2 Storage devices (HDDs, memory keys) are measured in MB, GB, or TB. For storage, MB equals 1 million bytes, GB equals 1 billion bytes, and TB equals 1 trillion bytes; accessible capacity is less. Up to 4 GB is used in service partition. Maximum internal disk capacities may require the replacement of any standard HDDs and the population of all HDD bays with the largest currently supported drives available.
3 Requires Internet access, not included.
4 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.
5 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.
6 For ThinkPad models without a separate video card, memory supports both system and video. Accessible system memory may be up to 48 MB less than the amount stated, depending on video mode.
7 Variable read rate. Actual playback speed will vary and is often less than the maximum possible.
8 Includes battery and standard optical drive in system; weight may vary depending on vendor components, manufacturing process, or options.
9 Thickness may vary at certain points on the system.
10 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 obtain the 1 GB maximum memory, replace the standard 128 or 256 MB module with two 512 MB modules.
