Intel's numbering is not a measurement of higher performance. Dual/Quad Core is a new technology 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. See www.intel.com/info/em64t for more information. (3) Up to 256MB of main system memory may be allocated to support video graphics. (4) For hard drives, GB = 1 billion bytes.
Actual formatted capacity is less. Up to 10GB of storage space is reserved for the system recovery software. (6) Actual speeds may vary. Does not permit copying of commercially available DVD movies or other copyright-protected materials. Intended only for creation and
storage of original material and other lawful uses. Double Layer is a new technology. Double Layer media compatibility will widely vary with some home DVD players and DVD-ROM drives. Note that DVD-RAM cannot read or write to 2.6GB Single Sided/5.2 GB Double
Sided – Version 1.0 media. (TouchSmart - DVD+/-R/RW 8X SuperMulti Slim Slot SATA Std Bezel) When mentioning drive speed, add: Data transfer rates up to 3,600 KB/s (CD read/write) and 10,816 KB/s (10) Internet access required and sold separately. (11) Internet

access number is local. A valid credit card is required to initiate the service. This offer valid in the U.S.A. only. Additional terms and conditions may apply, see AOL offer for details. (17) ATSC high-definition (HD) and NTSC source content varies and will depend on broadcast
signal, antenna, geographic location and other factors. An external over-the-air antenna that receives UHF and VHF signals is required for ATSC reception. Viewing HD content will require a compatible high-definition display. Ability to record, edit, or transfer broadcast
content such as TV programming may be limited depending on the type of content. Performance issues may arise, and do not constitute defects in the product. For optimal results, HP recommends closing all other applications while recording and watching television
programs. (19) Wireless access point and Internet service sold separately. The specifications for the 802.11n WLAN are draft specifications and are not final. This may affect the ability of the PC to communicate with other 802.11n WLAN devices. (24) Power supply upgrade
may be required for graphics card upgrade, check with graphics card supplier. (27) Up to 30% performance increase versus GeForce 9300GE without hSLI and GeForce 8200 gfx chipset. Shared video memory (UMA) uses part of the total system memory for video
performance. System memory dedicated to video performance is not available for other use by other programs. (28) High definition (HD) content is required to view HD images. (29) Internet access required. (30) Wireless access point and Internet service sold separately. (31)
