About the Product Capacity Representation Standard
About HDD Capacity Representation
The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer is calculated assuming that
1KB=1,000 Bytes.
However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage device capacity assuming
that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and therefore the capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is
smaller than the actual capacity due to the difference in capacity calculation.
(E.g. For a 80GB HDD, Windows represents the capacity as 74.5GB, 80x1,000x1,000x1,000
byte/(1,024x1,024x1,024)byte = 74.505GB)
In addition, the capacity representation in Windows may be even smaller because some
programs such as Recovery Solution may reside in a hidden area of the HDD.
About Memory Capacity Representation
The memory capacity reported in Windows is less than the actual capacity of memory.
This is because BIOS or a video adapter uses a portion of memory or claims it for further use.
(E.g. For 1GB(=1,024MB) memory installed, Windows may report the capacity as 1,022MB or
less)

Wireless Guidance
(If fitted with 2.4G band or 5G band)
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless communication devices),
operating in the 2.4GHz/5GHz Band, may be present (embedded) in your notebook system.
The following section is a general overview of considerations while operating a wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries are listed in the specific
country sections (or country group sections). The wireless devices in your system are only
qualified for use in the countries identified by the Radio Approval Marks on the system rating
label. If the country you will be using the wireless device in, is not listed, please contact your
local Radio Approval agency for requirements. Wireless devices are closely regulated and use
may not be allowed.
The RF field strength of the wireless device or devices that may be embedded in your notebook
are well below all international RF exposure limits as known at this time. Because the wireless
devices (which may be embedded into your notebook) emit less energy than is allowed in radio
frequency safety standards and recommendations, manufacturer believes these devices are
safe for use. Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken to minimize human contact
during normal operation.
As a general guideline, a separation of 20 cm (8 inches) between the wireless device and the
body, for use of a wireless device near the body (this does not include extremities) is typical.
This device should be used more than 20 cm (8 inches) from the body when wireless devices

commercial aircraft. Current aviation regulations require wireless devices to be
turned off while traveling in an airplane.
802.11ABGN (also known as wireless Ethernet or Wifi) and Bluetooth communication
devices are examples of devices that provide wireless communication.
 In environments where the risk of interference to other devices or services is harmful
or perceived as harmful, the option to use a wireless device may be restricted or
eliminated. Airports, Hospitals, and Oxygen or flammable gas laden atmospheres
are limited examples where use of wireless devices may be restricted or eliminated.
When in environments where you are uncertain of the sanction to use wireless
devices, ask the applicable authority for authorization prior to use or turning on the
wireless device.
 Every country has different restrictions on the use of wireless devices. Since your
system is equipped with a wireless device, when traveling between countries with
your system, check with the local Radio Approval authorities prior to any move or trip
for any restrictions on the use of a wireless device in the destination country.
 If your system came equipped with an internal embedded wireless device, do not
operate the wireless device unless all covers and shields are in place and the system
is fully assembled.
 Wireless devices are not user serviceable. Do not modify them in any way.

European Telecommunication
Information (for products fitted with
EU-approved modems)
This equipment has been approved to
Council Decision 98/482/EEC - “CTR 21” for
Pan-European single terminal connection
to the Public Switched Telephone Network
(PSTN).
Marking by the symbol
indicates
compliance of this equipment to the Radio
and Telecom Terminal Equipment Directive
1999/5/EC. Such marking is indicative
that this equipment meets or exceeds the
following technical standards:
However, due to differences between the
individual PSTNs provided in different
countries, the approval does not, of
itself, give an unconditional assurance
of successful operation on every PSTN
termination point. In the event of problems,
you should contact manufacturer Technical
Support.
CTR 21 - Attachment requirements for
pan-European approval for connection to
the analogue Public Switched Telephone
Networks (PSTNs) of TE (excluding TE
supporting voice telephony services) in
which network addressing, if provided, is by
means of Dual Tone Multi-Frequency (DTMF)
signaling.
Although this equipment can use
either loop disconnect (pulse)
or DTMF (tone) signaling, only
the performance of the DTMF
signaling is subject to regulatory
requirements for correct operation.
It is therefore strongly
recommended that the equipment
is set to use DTMF signaling
for access to public or private
emergency services. DTMF
signaling also provides faster call
setup.

Battery Usage Time Information
A battery is an expendable supply, so when
using it over a long time, the capacity/battery
life is shortened. If the battery life is reduced
to under half of its initial time, we recommend
purchasing a new battery.
For long periods of not using the battery,
keep the battery after discharging it. This
extends the battery life time.
