Sold separately or purchased as an optional feature.
64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers and applications enabled
for Intel® 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary
depending on your hardware and software configurations. See www.intel.com/info/em64t for more information. Quad Core is designed to improve performance
of multithreaded software products and hardware-aware multitasking operating systems and may require appropriate operating system software for full benefit.
Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. Intel’s numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, memory above 3 GB may not all
be available due to system resource requirements.
4DIMM slots are available on select configurations only.
Testing was not intended to demonstrate fitness for DOD contracts requirements or for military use. Test results are not a guarantee of future performance
under these test conditions.
Gobi requires a separately purchased service contract. Check with provider for availability and coverage in your area.
Wireless access point and Internet service is required and is not included. Availability of public wireless access points limited.
GPS access requires an unobstructed path to multiple satellites. Performance may be affected if/when used inside of buildings, bridges or heavily congested
metropolitan areas. Requires separately purchased GPS navigation software available from multiple GPS applications.
HP QuickLook 3 is accessible when the notebook is off in Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7-based systems; not supported from hibernation. Timing
may vary depending on the system configuration. To enable the feature following the removal of the battery, reboot the notebook prior to subsequent use.
HP QuickWeb is accessible when the notebook is off in Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7-based systems; not supported from hibernation. Internet
access required. Timing may vary depending on the system configuration. To enable the feature following the removal of the battery, reboot the notebook prior
to subsequent use.
Power calculations and cost calculations are estimates. Results will vary based on variables, which include information provided by the user, time PC is in
different power states (on, standby, hibernate, off), time PC is on battery or AC, hardware configuration, variable electricity rates and utilities provider. HP
advises customers to use information reported by HP Power Assistant for reference only and to validate impact in their environment. Environmental
calculations were based on U.S. EPA eGrid 2007 data found at www.epa.gov/egrid/. Regional results will vary.
Systems may require upgraded and/or separately purchased hardware and/or a DVD drive to install the Windows 7 software and take full advantage of
Windows 7 functionality. See http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/ for details.
Windows® XP Professional is preinstalled on this system and includes end user rights and media for Windows 7 Professional. You may only use one
version at a time. You must back up all data (files, photos, etc.) before uninstalling and installing operating systems to avoid loss of your data.
Certain Windows Vista product features require advanced or additional hardware. See www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/hardwarereqs.mspx.
Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor can help you determine which features of Windows Vista will run on your computer. To download the tool, visit
www.windowsvista.com/upgradeadvisor.
Intel® Turbo Boost technology requires a PC with a processor with Intel Turbo Boost capability. Intel Turbo Boost performance varies depending on hardware,
software and overall system configuration. See www.intel.com/technology/turboboost for more information.
Requires separately purchased Internet and VoIP service contracts
The term “10/100/1000” or “Gigabit” Ethernet indicates compliance with IEEE standard 802.3ab for Gigabit Ethernet, and does not connote actual operating

HP Fast Charge recharges your primary battery up to 90% within 90 minutes when the system is off.
Internet access required.
As HD DVD is a new format containing new technologies, certain disc, digital connection, compatibility and/or performance issues may arise, and do not
constitute defects in the product. Flawless playback on all systems is not guaranteed. In order for some HD-DVD titles to play, they may require an HDMI
digital connection and your display may require HDCP support. Blu-ray Disc movies cannot be played on this Notebook PC. Note that DVD-RAM cannot read
