About the Product Capacity Representation
Standard
About the capacity representation of the storage
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 may reside in a
hidden area of the HDD.
Chapter 1
Getting Started
5
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)
Safety Precautions

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
using. Regardless of the power levels, care should be taken to
minimize human contact during normal operation.
Some circumstances require restrictions on wireless devices.
Examples of common restrictions are listed on the next page:
Chapter 6
Appendix

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

Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information (SAR)
Chapter 6
Appendix
119
SAR level of the device while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the device is designed to operate
at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to
reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base
station antenna, the lower the power output.
This product can contain an embedded radio transmitter and
receiver. It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the
exposure limits for radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. government. These
FCC exposure limits are derived from the recommendations of two
expert organizations, the National Council on Radiation Protection
and Measurement (NCRP) and the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In both cases, the recommendations
were developed by scientific and engineering experts drawn from
industry, government, and academia after extensive reviews of the
scientific literature related to the biological effects of RF energy.
Before a new model is available for sale to the public, it must
be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the
exposure limit established by the FCC. Tests for each model are
performed in positions and locations (e.g. at the bottom on the
body) as required by the FCC.
The exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless devices employs a
unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).
The SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF energy by the
human body expressed in units of watts per kilogram (W/kg). The
FCC requires wireless devices to comply with a safety limit of 1.6
watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC exposure limit incorporates
a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection to the
public and to account for any variations in measurements.
SAR information on this and other model can be viewed on-line at
http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/. This site uses this product FCC
ID number on the outside of the product. Sometimes it may be
necessary to remove the battery pack to find the number. Once
you have the FCC ID number for a particular product, follow the
instructions on the website and it should provide values for typical
or maximum SAR for a particular product.
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions
accepted by the FCC with the wireless transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the
SAR is determined at the highest certified power level, the actual
For body worn operation, this model has been tested and meets
