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.
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)

Samsung observes the specifications regarding strict
quality and reliability of LCD. But in spite of that, it is
inevitable that there might be a small number of bad
pixels. A large number of bad pixels can cause problems in
appearance, but a small number of pixels doesn’t affect the
computer performance.
Therefore Samsung observes and manages the following
dot principles:
- Bright dot : 2 or less
- Black dot : 4 or less
- Combination of Bright and Dark : 4 or less
Instructions for Cleaning the LCD
Clean the LCD panel with a soft cloth lightly moistened with
computer cleansing detergent moving in one direction.
Cleaning the LCD panel with excessive force can damage the

Recovery Solution Representation (Optional)
What is a Recovery Area?
•• Samsung computers have an additional partition to recover
computers or save backup files.
(Only for models with the Samsung Recovery Solution.)
This partition is called a Recovery Area and it includes a recovery
image that comprises of the OS and application programs.
•• You can either double-click the Samsung Recovery Solution
while booting the computer
icon on the desktop or press
to enter the Recovery Area. Then you can back up the present
computer state or recover the computer from backed up images.
•• For deleting the Recovery Area, you need to use an additional
Recovery Area Removal Tool. After deleting the recovery area,
you can use the newly created partition for other uses, such as
for saving personal data. Be careful that once the recovery area is
deleted, the Samsung Recovery Solutions will not work anymore.
The capacity representation of the hard disk drive(HDD)
in Windows is different from the product specifications.
•• The capacity of the storage device (HDD) 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.
This is due to the difference in capacity calculation and does
not mean the installed HDD is different from the product
specifications.
•• The capacity representation in Windows may be smaller than the
actual capacity because some programs occupy a certain area of
the HDD outside of Windows.
•• For models with Samsung Recovery Solution, the HDD capacity
representation in Windows may be smaller than the actual
capacity because Samsung Recovery Solution uses a hidden area
of about 5~20GB of the HDD to save the recovery image, and
that hidden area is not counted towards the total size available to
Windows.
The size of Samsung Recovery Solution varies by models because
of the different size of applied programs.

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 5.
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
wireless device, do not operate the wireless device unless
all covers and shields are in place and the system is fully
assembled.

Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information
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
certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the exposure limit
established by the FCC. Evaluation per each model is performed
in positions and locations (e.g. at the bottom on the body) as
required by the FCC.
For body worn operation, this model meets the FCC RF exposure
guidelines when used with Samsung accessory designated for this
product. Non-compliance with the above restrictions may result in
violation of FCC RF exposure guidelines.

Backup
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
A way to save the current data to restore it later if necessary.
A backup is a way to restore computer data when the data or
computer is damaged.
This refers to automatically allocating IP addresses to the users on
the network by the network administrators.
Chargeable USB
An application interface developed to enable Windows application
programs to access hardware devices at a very high speed. Since
the operating speed of graphics, memory and sound cards must be
very fast to provide high quality video and sound for games, Direct
X enables faster control and interaction between applications and
hardware devices. By using Direct X, the multimedia performance
of Windows has been hugely improved.
This program enables supplying power to a specific USB port when
the system is in power saving mode, hibernation mode or off.
Client
This refers to a computer that uses a shared network resource
provided by a server.
DDR SDRAM
(Double Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory)
DRAM is a memory type whose cells consist of a capacitor and
transistor manufactured at a low price. SDRAM is a memory type
whose performance has been improved by synchronizing the clock
with the external CPU clock. DDR SDRAM is a memory type whose
performance has been improved by doubling the operating speed
of the SDRAM and is widely used nowadays. This computer uses
DDR SDRAM.
Device Manager
An administrative tool used to manage computer devices. You can
add or remove hardware or update a device driver using the Device
Manager.
Direct X
Driver
Software that interacts between the hardware and the operating
system. An operating system knows the hardware information
and controls the hardware. In general, a driver is supplied with the
corresponding hardware device.

DVD (Digital Versatile Disk)
IEEE802.XX
DVD was developed to replace CD (compact disk). Although the
shape and size of the disc are the same as that of a CD, the capacity
of a DVD is at least 4.7GB while the capacity of a CD is 600MB. DVD
video is digital unlike VHS (analog) video and supports MPEG2
compression and digital audio. To play a DVD, a DVD drive is
required.
This is a set fo specifications developed by the 802 committee of
IEEE for the LAN connection method called XX.
Firewall
A security system used to protect an internal network or intranet
from external networks through an authentication procedure.
HDMI
This is a digital video / audio interface specification that transmits
video and audio signals over a single cable.
Hibernation Mode
A power mode that saves all data in memory to the hard disk and
turns the CPU and hard disk off. When canceling Hibernation Mode,
all application programs that were running are restored to their last
state.
Icon
This refers to a small image that represents a file that users can use.

LAN (Local Area Network)
A communications network connecting computers, printers and
other devices within a local area such as within a building. A LAN
enables all connected devices to interact with other devices on the
network. The current LAN uses the Ethernet media access control
method developed in the early 1980s. To connect to an Ethernet, a
network card called a LAN card, Ethernet card or network interface
card is required. To exchange data between computers, a protocol
is required besides the hardware equipment. Windows uses TCP/IP
as the default protocol.
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)
There are Passive Matrix and Active Matrix LCD types. This
computer uses the Active Matrix type LCD called a TFT LCD. Since
an LCD is implemented by transistors instead of a cathode-ray tube
unlike a CRT, its size can be slim. And because it does not blink, it
reduces eye strain.

Network
Protocol
A group of computers and devices, such as printers and scanners,
connected by a communications link. A network can be either
small or large and can be connected permanently through cables
or temporarily through telephone lines or wireless links. The
biggest network is the Internet, a worldwide network.
A protocol is a set of rules used by computers to communicate with
each other across a network. A protocol is a convention or standard
that controls or enables the connection, communication, and
data transfer between computing endpoints. It defines the data
transmission procedures and the transmission medium for more
efficient network functions.
Network Administrator
A user who plans, configures and manages network operations.
Sometimes, a network administrator is called a system
administrator.
Notification Area
This refers to the right area of the Taskbar including program icons
such as the volume control, the power options and the time.
Partition
This refers to the act or practice of dividing the storage space of
a hard disk drive into separate data areas known as partitions. If a
100GB hard disk drive is partitioned into 2 x 50GB partitions, the
hard disk drive can be used as if there are 2 hard disk drives.
Quick Launch
This refers to a toolbar that can be configured so that you can
launch a program such as Internet Explorer or display the Windows
Desktop with one click. You can add any icon to the quick launch
area of the Taskbar and launch frequently used program by clicking
that icon.
SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card
This is the extension of the SD card that supports over 2GB bytes.
SDXC (Secure Digital eXtended Capacity)
SDXC provides a higher capacity and speed than the SDHC
specification. This is a new SD card specification that can
theoretically implement a memory capacity up to 2TB.
For high capacity implementation, apply the exFAT specifications.
Server
In general, a server refers to a computer that provides shared
resources for network users.

Share
USB (Universal Serial Bus)
This refers to setting a resource of a computer such as a folder or
printer so that other users can also use it.
This refers to a serial interface standard developed to replace the
conventional interface standards such as Serial and PS/2.
Shared Folder
A folder that can be used by other users on the network.
Sleep Mode
A power mode that enables computers to save power consumption
when they are not being used. When a computer is in Sleep Mode,
the data on the computer memory is not saved to the hard disk. If
the power is turned off, the data in memory will be lost.
System File
System Files refer to files that are read and used by the Windows
operating system. In general, system files must not be deleted or
moved.
