Introduction
============
The FreeType Project is distributed in several archive packages; some of
them may contain, in addition to the FreeType font engine, various tools
and contributions which rely on, or relate to, the FreeType Project.
This license applies to all files found in such packages, and which do not
fall under their own explicit license. The license affects thus the FreeType
font engine, the test programs, documentation and makefiles, at the very
least.
This license was inspired by the BSD, Artistic, and IJG (Independent JPEG
Group) licenses, which all encourage inclusion and use of free software in
commercial and freeware products alike. As a consequence, its main
points are that:
We don't promise that this software works. However, we will be
interested in any kind of bug reports. (`as is' distribution)
You can use this software for whatever you want, in parts or full form,
without having to pay us. (`royalty-free' usage)
You may not pretend that you wrote this software. If you use it, or only
parts of it, in a program, you must acknowledge somewhere in your
documentation that you have used the FreeType code. (`credits')
We specifically permit and encourage the inclusion of this software, with or
without modifications, in commercial products.
We disclaim all warranties covering The FreeType Project and assume no
liability related to The FreeType Project.
Finally, many people asked us for a preferred form for a credit/disclaimer to
use in compliance with this license. We thus encourage you to use the
following text:
"""
Portions of this software are copyright (C) <year> The FreeType Project
(www.freetype.org). All rights reserved.
"""
Please replace <year> with the value from the FreeType version you
actually use.

ENERGY STAR® Program
Your Computer model may be ENERGY STAR®
compliant. If the model you purchased is compliant, it is
labeled with the ENERGY STAR logo on the computer and
the following information applies.
TOSHIBA is a partner in the ENERGY STAR Program and
has designed this computer to meet the latest ENERGY
STAR guidelines for energy efficiency. Your computer
ships with the power management options preset to a
configuration that will provide the most stable operating
environment and optimum system performance for both
AC power and battery modes.
To conserve energy, your computer is set to enter the lowpower Sleep Mode which shuts down the system and
display within 15 minutes of inactivity in AC power mode.
TOSHIBA recommends that you leave this and other
energy saving features active, so that your computer will
operate at its maximum energy efficiency. You can wake
the computer from Sleep Mode by pressing the power
button.
Products that earn the ENERGY STAR prevent
greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy
efficiency guidelines set by the US EPA and the EU
Commission. According to the EPA, a computer meeting
the new ENERGY STAR specifications will use between
20% and 50% less energy depending on how it is used.
Visit http://www.eu-energystar.org or http://
www.energystar.gov for more information regarding the
ENERGY STAR Program.
Disposing of the computer and the computer's
batteries
Contact an authorized TOSHIBA service provider for details regarding how
to dispose of the computer and the batteries.
General Precautions
TOSHIBA computers are designed to optimize safety, minimize strain and
withstand the rigors of portability. However, certain precautions should be
observed to further reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the
computer.
Be certain to read the general precautions below and to note the cautions
included in the text of the manual.
User's Manual
1-14
Provide adequate ventilation
Always make sure your computer and AC adaptor have adequate
ventilation and are protected from overheating when the power is turned on
or when an AC adaptor is connected to a power outlet (even if your
computer is in Sleep Mode). In this condition, observe the following:
Never cover your computer or AC adaptor with any object.
Never place your computer or AC adaptor near a heat source, such as
an electric blanket or heater.
Never cover or block the air vents including those located at the base
of the computer.
Always operate your computer on a hard flat surface. Using your
computer on a carpet or other soft material can block the vents.
Always provide sufficient space around the computer.
Overheating your computer or AC adaptor could cause system failure,
computer or AC adaptor damage or a fire, possibly resulting in serious
injury.
Creating a computer-friendly environment
Place the computer on a flat surface that is large enough for the computer
and any other items you are using, such as a printer.
Leave enough space around the computer and other equipment to provide

Using your computer for the first time
Be sure to read the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort for
information on the safe and proper use of this computer. It is intended to
help you be more comfortable and productive while using a notebook
computer. By following the recommendations in it you may reduce your
chance of developing a painful or disabling injury to your hand, arms,

Connecting the AC adaptor
Opening the display
Turning on the power
Initial setup
User's Manual
2-2
Use a virus-check program and make sure it is updated regularly.
Never format storage media without checking its content - formatting
erases all stored data.
It is a good idea to periodically back up the internal HDD/SSD or other
main storage device to external media. General storage media is not
durable or stable over long periods of time and under certain
conditions may result in data loss.
Before you install a device or application, save any data in memory to
the HDD/SSD or other storage media. Failure to do so may result in
the loss of data.
Connecting the AC adaptor
Attach the AC adaptor when you need to charge the battery or you want to
operate from AC power. It is also the fastest way to get started, because
the battery pack will need to be charged before you can operate from
battery power.
The AC adaptor can automatically adjust to any voltage ranging from 100
to 240 volts and to a frequency of either 50 or 60 hertz, enabling you to use
this computer in almost any country/region. The adaptor converts AC
power to DC power and reduces the voltage supplied to this computer.
Always use the TOSHIBA AC adaptor that was included with your
computer, or use AC adaptors specified by TOSHIBA to avoid any risk
of fire or other damage to the computer. Use of an incompatible AC
adaptor could cause fire or damage to the computer possibly resulting
in serious injury. TOSHIBA assumes no liability for any damage
caused by use of an incompatible adaptor.
Never plug the AC adaptor into a power source that does not
correspond to both the voltage range and the frequency specified on
the regulatory label of the unit. Failure to do so could result in a fire or
electric shock, possibly resulting in serious injury.
Always use or purchase power cables that comply with the legal
voltage, frequency specifications and requirements in the country of
use. Failure to do so could result in a fire or electric shock, possibly
resulting in serious injury.
The supplied power cord conforms to safety rules and regulations in
the region the computer is bought and may not be used outside this
region. For use in other regions, please buy power cords that conform
to safety rules and regulations in the particular region.
Do not use a 3-pin to 2-pin conversion plug.
User's Manual

How to Swipe your Finger
Using the following steps when swiping fingers for fingerprint registration or
authentication will help to minimize authentication failures:
Align the first joint of the finger to the center of the sensor. Lightly touch the
sensor and swipe finger levelly towards you until the sensor surface
becomes visible. In performing this process, you should also take care to
ensure that the center of your fingerprint is on the sensor.
The following illustrations show the recommended way to swipe your finger
over the fingerprint sensor.
Figure 4-3 Swipe the finger
1
1
1. Sensor
Avoid swiping with your finger stiff or pressed too hard onto the
sensor, and take care to ensure that the center of the fingerprint is
touching the sensor before swiping. Either of these conditions may
cause fingerprint reading to fail.
Check the center of the fingerprint whorl before swiping and then
ensure this is swiped along the center line of the sensor.
There is a possibility of authentication failures if the finger is swiped
too quickly or too slowly - follow any on-screen instructions to adjust
the speed used during the swipe process.
Points to note about the Fingerprint Sensor
Please be aware of the following considerations when using the fingerprint
sensor. A failure to follow these guidelines might result in damage to the
sensor, sensor failure, fingerprint recognition problems or a lower
fingerprint recognition success rate.
Do not scratch or poke the sensor with your nails or any hard or sharp
objects.
Do not press the sensor strongly.
Do not touch the sensor with a wet finger or any wet objects - keep the
sensor surface dry and free from water vapor.
Do not touch the sensor with a soiled or dirty finger as minute foreign
particles of dust and dirt may scratch it.
User's Manual
4-7
Do not paste stickers or write on the sensor.
Do not touch the sensor with a finger or any other object which may
have a build-up of static electricity on it.
Observe the following before you place your finger on the sensor whether
for fingerprint enrollment/registration or recognition.
Wash and dry your hands thoroughly.
Remove static electricity from your fingers by touching any metal
surface. Static electricity is a common cause of sensor failures,
especially when the weather is dry.
Clean the sensor with a lint-free cloth - do not use detergent or any
other chemicals to clean the sensor.
Avoid the following finger conditions for enrollment or recognition as
they may result in fingerprint enrollment errors or a drop in the
fingerprint recognition success rate
Soaked or swollen finger, for example as may occur after taking a
bath.
Injured finger
Wet finger
Soiled or oily finger
Extremely dry skin condition on finger
Observe the following to improve the fingerprint recognition success rate.
Enroll two or more fingers.
Enroll additional fingers if a recognition failure often occurs when using
already enrolled fingers.
Check the condition of your finger - any conditions which have
changed since enrollment, such as injury, rough skin, and extremely
dry, wet, soiled, dirty, oily, soaked or swollen fingers, may lower the
recognition success rate. Also if the fingerprint is worn down or the
finger becomes thinner or fatter, the recognition success rate may be
lowered.
As the fingerprint for each finger is different and unique you should
ensure that only the registered or enrolled fingerprint or fingerprints
are used for identification.
Check the position and speed at which you swipe your finger across
the sensor - please refer to the preceding drawing.
The fingerprint sensor compares and analyzes the unique
characteristics in a fingerprint. However, there may be instances
where certain users are unable to register their fingerprints due to
insufficient unique characteristics in their fingerprints.
The recognition success rate may differ from user to user.
Points to note about Fingerprint Utility
If Windows file encryption function EFS (Encryption File System) is
used to encrypt a file, the file cannot be further encrypted using the
encryption function of this software.

Battery types
The computer has different types of batteries.
Battery pack
When the AC adaptor is not connected, the computer's main power source
is a lithium ion battery, also referred to in this manual as the main battery.
Real Time Clock (RTC) battery
The Real Time Clock (RTC) battery provides power for the internal real
time clock and calendar function and also maintains the system
configuration while the computer is turned off. If the RTC battery becomes
completely discharged, the system will lose this information and the real
time clock and calendar will stop working.
You can change the Real Time Clock settings in the TOSHIBA Setup
Utility. Please refer to Real Time Clock for further information.
The computer's RTC battery is rechargeable and should be replaced
only by your dealer or by a TOSHIBA service representative. The
battery can explode if not properly replaced, used, handled or
disposed. Dispose of the battery as required by local ordinances or
regulations.
The RTC battery does not charge while the computer is turned off
even if the AC adaptor is attached.
Care and use of the battery pack
This section provides the important safety precautions in order to handle
your battery pack properly.
Refer to the enclosed Instruction Manual for Safety and Comfort for
detailed precautions and handling instructions.
The battery pack can explode if not replaced, used, handled or
disposed of properly. Use only batteries recommended by TOSHIBA
as replacements.
Charge the battery pack only in an ambient temperature between 5
and 35 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, the electrolyte solution might leak,
battery pack performance might deteriorate and the battery life might
be shortened.
Charging the batteries
When the power in the battery pack becomes low, the DC IN/Battery
indicator will flash amber to indicate that only a few minutes of battery
power remain. If you continue to use the computer while the DC IN/Battery
User's Manual
4-13
indicator flashes, the computer will enable Hibernation Mode so that you do
not lose any data, and automatically turn itself off.
You must recharge a battery pack when it becomes discharged.
Procedures
To recharge a battery pack, connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack
and plug the other end into a working outlet - the DC IN/Battery indicator
will glow amber while the battery is being charged.
Charging Time
Refer to User Information Guide about Charging time.
Battery charging notice
The battery may not begin charging immediately under the following
conditions:
The battery is extremely hot or cold (if the battery is extremely hot, it
might not charge at all). To ensure the battery charges to its full
capacity, you should charge it at room temperature of between 5°C to
35°C (41°F to 95°F).
The battery is nearly completely discharged. In this instance you
should leave the AC adaptor connected for a few minutes and the
battery should begin charging.
The DC IN/Battery indicator may show a rapid decrease in battery
operating time when you try to charge a battery under the following
conditions:
The battery has not been used for a long time.
The battery has completely discharged and been left in the computer
for a long time.
In such cases you should follow the steps as detailed below:
1.
2.
3.
Fully discharge the battery by leaving it in the computer with the power
on until the system automatically turns itself off.
Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack of the computer, and to
a wall outlet that is supplying power.
Charge the battery until the DC IN/Battery indicator glows white.
Repeat these steps two or three times until the battery recovers normal
capacity.
Monitoring battery capacity
Remaining battery power can be monitored using the following methods.
Clicking the battery icon on the Taskbar
Via the Battery Status in the Windows Mobility Center window
User's Manual
4-14
You should wait at least 16 seconds after turning on the computer
before trying to monitor the remaining operating time. This is because
the computer needs this time to check the battery's remaining capacity
and then calculate the remaining operating time, based on this
together with the current power consumption.
Please be aware that the actual remaining operating time may differ
slightly from the calculated time.
With repeated discharges and recharges, the battery's capacity will
gradually decrease. In view of this it will be noted that an often used,
older battery will not operate for as long as a new battery even when
both are fully charged.
Maximizing battery operating time
A battery's usefulness depends on how long it can supply power on a
single charge, while how long the charge lasts in a battery depends on:
Processor speed
Screen brightness
HDD/SSD power off period
How often and for how long you use the HDD/SSD and external disk
drives, for example, optical disc.
How much charge the battery contained to begin with.
How you use optional devices, such as a USB device, to which the
battery supplies power.
Where you store your programs and data.
Whether you close the display panel when you are not using the
keyboard - closing the display saves power.
The environmental temperature - operating time decreases at low
temperatures.
System Sleep Mode
System Hibernation Mode
Display power off period
Whether you enable Sleep Mode, which can conserve battery power if
you are frequently turning the computer off and on.
Whether you enable Sleep and Charge function.

At least once a month, disconnect the computer from a power source and
operate it on battery power until the battery pack fully discharges. Before
doing so, follow the steps as detailed below.
1. Turn off the computer's power.
2. Disconnect the AC adaptor and turn on the computer's power - if it
does not turn on then go to Step 4.
3. Operate the computer on battery power for five minutes. If you find
that the battery pack has at least five minutes of operating time,
continue operating until the battery pack is fully discharged, however, if
the DC IN/Battery indicator flashes or there is some other warning to
indicate a low battery condition, go to Step 4.
4. Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN 19V jack of the computer, and
to a wall outlet that is supplying power. The DC IN/Battery indicator
should glow amber to indicate that the battery pack is being charged,
however, in the event that DC IN/Battery indicator does not glow this
indicates that power is not being supplied - check the connections for
the AC adaptor and the power cord.
5. Charge the battery pack until the DC IN/Battery indicator glows
white.

Chapter 6
Troubleshooting
TOSHIBA has designed this computer for durability, however, should
problems occur you are able to use the procedures detailed in this chapter
to help determine the cause.
All users should become familiar with this chapter as knowing what might
go wrong can help prevent problems from occurring in the first place.
Problem solving process
Resolving problems will be much easier if you observe the following
guidelines:
Stop immediately when you recognize a problem exists as taking
further action may result in data loss or damage, or you may destroy
valuable problem related information that can help solve the problem.
Observe what is happening - write down what the system is doing and
what actions you performed immediately before the problem occurred.
Make a screenshot of the current display.
Please also be aware that the questions and procedures described in this
chapter are meant only as a guide, they are not definitive problem solving
techniques. In reality many problems can be solved simply, but a few may
require help from TOSHIBA Support - if you find you need to consult
others, be prepared to describe the problem in as much detail as possible.
Preliminary checklist
You should always consider the simplest solution first - the items detailed
in this checklist are easy to fix and yet can cause what appears to be a
serious problem:
Make sure you turn on all peripheral devices before you turn on the
computer - this includes your printer and any other external device you
are using.
Before you attach an external device you should first turn the
computer off, then when you turn the computer back on again it will
recognize the new device.
Make sure all optional accessories are configured properly in the
computer's setup program and that all required driver software has
been loaded (please refer to the documentation included with the
optional accessories for further information on its installation and
configuration).
User's Manual
6-1
Check all cables to ensure they are correctly and firmly attached to the
computer - loose cables can cause signal errors.
Inspect all connecting cables for loose wires and all connectors for
loose pins.
Check that your disc media is correctly loaded
Always try to make detailed notes of your observations and keep them in a
permanent error log - this will help you to describe your problems to
TOSHIBA Support. In addition, if a problem recurs, the log you have made
will help to identify the problem faster.
Analyzing the problem
Sometimes the computer will give you clues that can help you identify why
it is malfunctioning. In view of this you should keep the following questions
in mind:
Which part of the computer is not operating properly - keyboard, HDD/
SSD, display panel, Touch Pad, Touch Pad control buttons - as each
device will produce different symptoms.
Check the options within the operating system to ensure that its
configuration is set properly.
What appears on the display? Does it display any messages or
random characters? Make a screenshot of the current display and, if
possible, look up the messages in the documentation included with the
computer, software or operating system.
Check that all connecting cables are correctly and firmly attached as
loose cables can cause erroneous or intermittent signals.
Do any indicators light, if so, which ones, what color are they and do
they stay on or blink? Write down what you see.
Do you hear any beeps, if so how many, are they long or short and are
they high pitched or low pitched? In addition, is the computer making
any unusual noises? Write down what you hear.
Record your observations so you can describe them in detail to TOSHIBA
Support.
Software
The problems may be caused by your software
or disk. If you cannot load a software package,
the media may be damaged or the program
might be corrupted - in these instances try
loading another copy of the software if possible.
If an error message appears while you are using
a software package you should refer to the
documentation supplied with it as this will usually
include a problem solving section or a summary
of error messages.
Next, you should check any error messages
against the operating system documentation.
User's Manual
6-2
Hardware
If you cannot find a software problem, you should
then check the setup and configuration of your
hardware. First run through the items in the
preliminary checklist as described previously
then, if you still cannot correct the problem, try to
identify the source - the next section provides
checklists for individual components and
peripherals.
Before using a peripheral device or application software that is not an
authorized TOSHIBA part or product, make sure the device or software can
be used with your computer. Use of incompatible devices may cause injury
or may damage your computer.

questions about using Wireless LAN or Bluetooth Module.
In Europe visit http://www.toshiba-europe.com/computers/tnt/bluetooth.htm
Wireless Devices and your health
Wireless products, like other radio devices, emit radio frequency
electromagnetic energy. The level of energy emitted by Wireless products
however is far much less than the electromagnetic energy emitted by
wireless devices like for example mobile phones.
Because Wireless products operate within the guidelines found in radio
frequency safety standards and recommendations, TOSHIBA believes
Wireless products are safe for use by consumers. These standards and
recommendations reflect the consensus of the scientific community and
result from deliberations of panels and committees of scientists who
continually review and interpret the extensive research literature.
In some situations or environments, the use of Wireless products may be
restricted by the proprietor of the building or responsible representatives of
the organization. These situations may for example include:
Using the Wireless products equipment on board of airplanes, or
In any other environment where the risk of interference to other
devices or services is perceived or identified as harmful.
If you are uncertain of the policy that applies on the use of wireless devices
in a specific organization or environment (e.g. airports), you are
encouraged to ask for authorization to use the Wireless device prior to
turning on the equipment.
Wireless LAN Technology
The computer’s wireless communication function supports some wireless
communication devices.
Only some models are equipped with both Wireless LAN and Bluetooth
functions.
Do not use the Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) or Bluetooth functionalities near a
microwave oven or in areas subject to radio interference or magnetic
fields. Interference from a microwave oven or other source can disrupt
Wi-Fi or Bluetooth operation.
User's Manual
7-5
Turn all wireless functionalities off when near a person who may have
a cardiac pacemaker implant or other medical electric device. Radio
waves may affect pacemaker or medical device operation, possibly
resulting in serious injury. Follow the instruction for your medical
device when using any wireless functionality.
Always turn off wireless functionality if the computer is near automatic
control equipment or appliances such as automatic doors or fire
detectors. Radio waves can cause malfunction of such equipment,
possibly resulting in serious injury.
It may not be possible to make a network connection to a specified
network name using the ad hoc network function. If this occurs, the
new network (*) will have to be configured for all computers connected
to the same network in order to re-enable network connections.
* Please be sure to use new network name.
Security
TOSHIBA strongly recommend that you enable encryption
functionality, otherwise your computer will be open to illegal access by
an outsider using a wireless connection. If this occurs, the outsider
may illegally access your system, eavesdrop, or cause the loss or
destruction of stored data.
TOSHIBA is not liable for the loss of data due to eavesdropping or
illegal access through the wireless LAN and the damage thereof.

Radio Frequency
Band 5GHz (5150-5850 MHz) (Revision a
and n)
Band 2.4GHz (2400-2483.5 MHz) (Revision
b/g and n)
The range of the wireless signal is related to the transmit rate of the
wireless communication. Communications at lower transmit range may
travel larger distances.
The range of your wireless devices can be affected when the
antennas are placed near metal surfaces and solid high-density
materials.
Range is also impacted due to "obstacles" in the signal path of the
radio that may either absorb or reflect the radio signal.
Radio Frequency Interference Requirements
This device is restricted to indoor use due to its operation in the 5.15 to
5.25GHz frequency range.
High-power radars are allocated as primary users (i.e. priority users) of the
bands 5.25 to 5.35GHz and 5.65 to 5.85GHz and that these radars could
cause interference and/or damage to LE-LAN devices.
Bluetooth wireless technology
Some computers in this series have Bluetooth wireless communication
function which eliminates the need for cables between electronic devices
such as computers, printers and mobile phones. When it is enabled,
Bluetooth provides the wireless personal area network environment which
is safe and trustworthy, that is quick and easy.
You cannot use the computer's built-in Bluetooth functions and an external
Bluetooth adaptor simultaneously. For reference, Bluetooth wireless
technology has the following features:
Security
Two advanced security mechanisms ensure a high level of security:
Authentication prevents access to critical data and makes it impossible
to falsify the origin of a message.
Encryption prevents eavesdropping and maintains link privacy.
Worldwide operation
The Bluetooth radio transmitter and receiver operate in the 2.4GHz band,
which is license-free and compatible with radio systems in most countries
in the world.

64-Bit Computing
64-bit processors are designed to take advantage of 32 and 64 bit
computing.
64-bit computing requires that the following hardware and software
requirements are met:
64-bit Operating System
64-bit CPU, Chipset and BIOS (Basic Input/Output System)
64-bit Device drivers
64-bit applications
Certain 32-bit device drivers and/or applications may not be compatible
with a 64-bit CPU/operating system and therefore may not function
properly.
Memory (Main System)
Part of the main system memory may be used by the graphics system for
graphics performance and therefore reduce the amount of main system
memory available for other computing activities. The amount of main
system memory allocated to support graphics may vary depending on the
graphics system, applications utilized, system memory size and other
factors.
If your computer is configured with more than 3 GB memory, the memory
might be displayed as approximately 3 GB only (depending on the
computer’s hardware specifications).
This is correct because the operating system usually displays the available
memory instead of the physical memory (RAM) built into the computer.
Various system components (like the video adapter’s GPU, etc.) require
their own memory space. Since a 32-bit operating system cannot address
more than 4 GB of memory, these system resources overlap the physical
memory. It is a technical limitation that the overlapped memory is not
User's Manual
7-17
available to the operating system. Even though some tools might display
the actual physical memory built into your computer, the memory available
to the operating system will still be approximately 3 GB only.
Computers configured with a 64-bit operating system can address 4 GB or
more of system memory.
Battery Life
Battery life may vary considerably depending on product model,
configuration, applications, power management settings and features
utilized, as well as the natural performance variations produced by the
design of individual components. Published battery life numbers are
achieved on select models and configurations tested by TOSHIBA at the
time of publication. Recharge time varies depending on usage. Battery may
not charge while computer is consuming full power.
After going through many charge and discharge cycles, the battery will lose
its ability to perform at maximum capacity and will need to be replaced.
This is a normal phenomenon for all batteries. To purchase a new battery
pack, see the accessories information that is shipped with your computer.
HDD/SSD Capacity
1 Gigabyte (GB) means 109 = 1,000,000,000 bytes using powers of 10.
The computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using
powers of 2 for the definition of 1 GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes, and
therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity will also
be less if the product includes one or more pre-installed operating systems,
such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software
applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.
LCD
Over a period of time, and depending on the usage of the computer, the
brightness of the LCD screen will deteriorate. This is an intrinsic
characteristic of LCD technology.
Maximum brightness is only available when operating in AC power mode.
Screen will dim when the computer is operated on battery power and you
may not be able to increase the brightness of the screen.
Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)
Graphics processing unit (GPU) performance may vary depending on
product model, design configuration, applications, power management
settings and features utilized. GPU performance is only optimized when
operating in AC power mode and may decrease considerably when
operating in battery power mode.
Total Available Graphics Memory is the total of, as applicable, Dedicated
Video Memory, System Video Memory and Shared System Memory.
User's Manual
7-18
Shared System Memory will vary depending on system memory size and
other factors.
Wireless LAN
The transmission speed over the wireless LAN and the distance over which
wireless LAN can reach may vary depending on surrounding
electromagnetic environment, obstacles, access point design and
configuration, and client design and software/hardware configurations.
The actual transmission speed will be lower than the theoretical maximum
speed.
