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

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.

Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information (SAR)
Chapter 5
Appendix
108
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
