  3. GB equals one billion bytes when referring to HDDs. Accessible capacity may vary.
  4. This V.90 modem can receive data up to 56 Kbps from a compatible 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 existing wireless network infrastructure.
  7. Requires Internet access account, available separately.
  8. Some software may differ from its retail version (if available), and may not include user's manuals or all program functions.
