Notes -
  1. MHz only measures internal clock speed, not application performance. Many factors affect application performance.
  2. Optional SDRAM memory modules are available in 32 MB, 64 MB, and 128 MB sizes. 256 MB total memory can be achieved by replacing the 32 or 64 MB memory card that comes with the base system with a 128 MB in that slot and inserting another 128 MB card in the second slot.
  3. GB equals one billion bytes when referring to hard disk drives. Accessible capacity may vary.
  4. This V.90 modem can receive data up to 56 Kbps from a K56Flex or V.90 service provider, transmitting data up to 31.2 Kbps. Public networks currently limit maximum download speeds to about 53 Kbps. Actual speeds depend on many factors and are often less than the maximum possible.
  5. Variable read rate. Actual playback speed will vary and is often less than the maximum possible.
  6. Requires internet access account, available separately.
  7. Telephone line charges and surcharges may apply. Online service charges will apply after expiration of initial trial period.
  8. Some software may differ from its retail version (if available), and may not include user manuals or all program functions. For non-IBM software, applicable third party software licenses may apply.
