Battery
HP 8-cell (73 WHr) Li-Ion battery
NOTE: 1: Processor speed denotes maximum performance mode; processors will run at lower speeds in battery optimization mode.

2: Intel's numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.

3: Intel HD Graphics for configurations with Celeron processor.

4: 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 Windows Vista Business 64-bit or Linux. With 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.

5: Memory speed is processor dependent.

6: The term "10/100/1000" or "Gigabit" Ethernet indicates compliance 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.

7: Up to 15GB is reserved for the system recovery software.

8: Blu-ray drives not available on configurations with an Intel Celeron processor. Support for the Blu-ray DVD drive on configurations with integrated graphics requires Windows7 or Windows Vista; configurations with discrete graphics support it with any offered Windows operating system.
