1. 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. 2. Dual 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. For hard drives, GB = 1 billion bytes. Actual formatted capacity is less. Up to 8 GB (for XP) and 10 GB (for Vista) of system disk is reserved for the system recovery software. 4. Do not copy copyright-protected
materials. Intended for creation and storage of your original material and other lawful uses. Double Layer discs can store more data than single layer discs. Double-layer discs burned with this drive may not be compatible with many existing single-layer DVD drives and players. LightScribe creates a monochrome
image. LightScribe media required and sold separately. Note that DVD-RAM cannot read or write to 2.6 GB Single Sided/5.2 GB Double Sided – Version 1.0 media. 5. 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. 6. Wireless, internet, and VoIP use require separately purchased service contract. Check with service provider for availability and coverage in your area. Available in select countries only. 7. The specifications for the 802.11n WLAN are draft specifications and are not final. If the
final specifications differ from the draft specifications, it may affect the ability of the PC to communicate with other 802.11n WLAN devices. 8. Wireless access point required and is not included. Availability of public wireless access points limited. 9. 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/s. For high speed transmission, connection to a Gigabit Ethernet server and network infrastructure is required. 10. HDMI cable not included on all models. 11. Some functionality of Intel Centrino Pro,
such as Intel Active management technology and Intel Virtualization technology, requires additional 3rd party software. Availability of future "virtual appliances" applications is dependent on 3rd party software providers. Compatibility of this generation of Centrino Pro technology-based hardware with future "virtual
appliances" and Microsoft Windows Vista operating system is to be determined. 12. TPM module disabled where not permitted by law. 13. Sold separately or purchased as an optional feature. 14. HP Fast Charge recharges your primary battery up to 90% within 90 minutes when the system is off. HP Fast Charge
does not apply to 9 cell primary and 12 cell Ultra Capacity batteries. 15. Dual Channel is only supported when the system is configured with DDR2 symmetric memory (i.e. 2x256). 16.
