Reference information

1 GHz and MHz denote the internal and/or external clock speed of the microprocessor only, not application performance. Many factors affect application performance.

2 Refer to the Planning information section for slot configuration information and restrictions.

3 When referring to hard drive or tape backup capacity, GB stands for one billion bytes. Total user capacity may vary depending on operating environments.

4 Actual playback speed will vary and is often less than the maximum possible.

5 IBM sends a technician after attempting to diagnose and resolve the problem remotely.
