    *7  Deploying IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.11g products on the same wireless network may reduce the communication speed due to radio interference. Taking this into consideration, the IEEE 802.11g products are designed to reduce the communication speed to ensure communication with IEEE 802.11b products. When the communication speed is not as fast as expected, changing the wireless channel on the access point may increase the communication speed.
    *8  The communication speed varies depending on the distance between communication devices, existence of obstacles between such devices, the device configuration, the radio conditions, and the software in use. In addition, communication may be cut off depending on the radio conditions.
    *9  This product may only function with a genuine Sony battery designed for this model.
    *10  Estimated battery life (under JEITA Battery Run Time Measurement Method (ver.1.0).) When the power‑saving mode is on. Actual battery life may vary with different operating conditions and settings. For further details, please visit vaio‑online.sony.com
