1: Resolutions are dependent upon monitor capability, and resolution and color depth settings.
2: Due to the non-industry standard nature of some third-party memory modules, we recommend HP branded memory to ensure compatibility. If memory speeds are mixed, the system will perform at the lower memory speed. Full availability of 4GB or more of memory requires a Windows 64-bit operating system or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, the amount of usable memory is dependent upon the configuration, so that above 3GB all memory may not be available due to system resource requirements.
3: The term "10/100/1000" or "Gigabit" Ethernet indicates compatibility 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.
4: Designed for downloads from 56K modem compliant sources. Maximum achievable download transmission rates currently do not reach 56 KB/s, and will vary with line conditions. Modem availability is subject to country regulatory approval.
5: Separately purchased mobile network operator service is required.
6: In countries where 802.11n is not allowed, this capability is not enabled (802.11a/b/g only).
7: These hard drives are customer removable and will withstand multiple insertion/removal cycles. Up to 20GB is reserved for the system recovery software.
8: HP Fast Charge recharges your battery up to 90% within 90 minutes when the system is off. Fast Charge Technology does not apply to 9-cell primary batteries.
9: Battery life will vary depending on the product model, configuration, loaded applications, features, use, wireless functionality and power management settings. The maximum capacity of the battery will naturally decrease with time and usage.
