http://www.microsoft.com. 2 Not all features are available in all editions of Windows 7. This system may require upgraded and/or separately purchased hardware to take full advantage of Windows 7 functionality. See
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/ for details. 3 This system is preinstalled with Windows 7 Pro software and also comes with a license and media for Windows 8.1 Pro software. You may only use one
version of the Windows software at a time. Switching between versions will require you to uninstall one version and install the other version. You must back up all data (files, photos, etc.) before uninstalling and installing
operating systems to avoid loss of your data. 4 Multi-Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology.
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. Intel's numbering is not a measurement of higher
performance. 5 Full availability of 4 GB or more of memory requires a 64-bit operating system. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, the amount of usable memory is dependent upon your configuration, so that
above 3 GB all memory may not be available due to system resource requirements. 6 For hard drives and solid state drives, GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual formatted capacity is less. Up to 16 GB (for Windows 7) and 30 GB
(for Windows 8.1) of system disk is reserved for the system recovery software. 7 Duplication of copyrighted material is strictly prohibited. Actual speeds may vary. Double Layer media compatibility will widely vary with
