1: Intel's numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.
2: Not available with vPro.
3: Processor speed denotes maximum performance mode; processors will run at lower speeds in battery optimization mode.
4: Intel HD Graphics for configurations with Celeron processor.
5: Due to the non-industry standard nature of some third-party memory modules, we recommend HP branded memory to ensure compatibility. If you mix memory speeds, the system will perform at the lower memory speed. Full availability of 4GB or more of memory requires a Microsoft Windows 64-bit operating system or Linux. With Microsoft Windows 32-bit operating systems, the amount of usable memory is dependent upon your configuration, so that above 3GB all memory may not be available due to system resource requirements.
6: Resolutions are dependent upon monitor capability, and resolution and color depth settings.
7: 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.
8: Designed for downloads from 56 K 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.
9: HP Fast Charge recharges your battery up to 90% within 90 minutes when the system is off. HP Fast Charge does not apply to the 9-cell primary battery, HP ST09 Extended Life Notebook Battery, or HP BB09 Ultra Extended Life Notebook Battery.
10: These hard drives are customer removable and will withstand multiple insertion/removal cycles. Up to 10GB is reserved for the system recovery software.
