http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-7/ for details.
Certain Windows Vista product features require advanced or additional hardware. See www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/hardwarereqs.mspx and
www.microsoft.com/windowsvista/getready/capable.mspx for details. Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor can help you determine which features of Windows Vista will run on your
computer. To download the tool, visit www.windowsvista.com/upgradeadvisor.
Windows® XP Professional is preinstalled on this system and includes end user rights and media for Windows 7 Professional. You may only use one version at a time. You must back
up all data (files, photos, etc.) before uninstalling and installing operating systems to avoid loss of your data.
Dual/Quad Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. 64bit 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.
Double-layer discs can store more data than single layer discs. However, double-layer discs burned with this drive may not be compatible with many existing single-layer DVD drives
and players. LightScribe media required and sold separately. LightScribe creates a monochrome image. Note that DVD-RAM cannot read or write to 2.6GB single-sided/5.2 GB
double-sided – version 1.0 media. Don’t copy copy-right protected materials.
As Blu-Ray is a new format containing new technologies, certain disc, digital connection, compatibility and/or performance issues may arise, and do not constitute defects in the
product. Flawless playback on all systems is not guaranteed. HD-DVD movies cannot be played on this device. Models with integrated graphics require Mobile Intel GM45 Express
chipset and Windows Vista to support the Blu-Ray DVD drive; models with discrete graphics support it with either Windows Vista or Windows XP.
HD content required to view HD images.
Wireless access point and Internet service is required and is not included. Availability of public wireless access points limited.
Gobi wireless technology requires separately purchased wireless data service contracts. Check with local service provider for coverage and availability in your area. Connection
speeds will vary due to location, environment, network conditions, and other factors.
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 programs.
For the use cases outlined in the DOD 5220.22-M Supplement.

following the removal of the battery, reboot the notebook prior to subsequent use.
Maximized dual-channel performance requires SODIMMs of the same size and speed in both memory slots.
Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, memory above 3 GB may not all be available due to
system resource requirements.
For hard drives, GB = 1 billion bytes. Up to 8 GB (for XP) , 10 GB (for Vista) or 15 GB (for Windows 7) of system disk is reserved for the system recovery software.
The term "10/100/1000" or "Gigabit" Ethernet indicates compliance with IEEE standard 802.3ab for Gigabit Ethernet, and does not connote actual operating speed of 1 Gb/sec.
For high speed transmission, connection to a Gigabit Ethernet server and network infrastructure is required.
HP Fast Charge recharges your primary battery up to 90% within 90 minutes when the system is off.
Sold separately or purchased as an optional feature.
