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)

Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information (SAR)
Chapter 6
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
a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection to the
public and to account for any variations in measurements.
SAR information on this and other model can be viewed on-line
at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/. This site uses this product FCC
ID number on the outside of the product. Sometimes it may be
necessary to remove the battery pack to find the number. Once
you have the FCC ID number for a particular product, follow the
instructions on the website and it should provide values for typical
or maximum SAR for a particular product.
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions
accepted by the FCC with the wireless transmitting at its highest
certified power level in all tested frequency bands. Although the
