  1. Battery life depends on configuration and use.
  2. 1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
  3. Wireless Internet access requires base station or other wireless access point and Internet access (fees may apply). Achieving data rates up to 54 Mbps requires that all users have an AirPort Extreme Card and connect to an AirPort Extreme Base Station. Some ISPs are not currently compatible with AirPort. Range may vary with site conditions.
  4. Actual weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process
