1 Maximum internal hard disk and memory capacities may require the replacement of any standard hard drives and/or memory and the population of all hard disk bays and memory slots with the largest currently supported drives available. When referring to variable speed CD-ROMs, CD-Rs, CD-RWs and DVDs, actual playback speed will vary and is often less than the maximum possible.
2 When referring to storage capacity,GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes and TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. Accessible capacity is less. 2 When referring to storage capacity,GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes and TB = 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. Accessible capacity is less
