Certification notes

Slow Resume from Suspend

This system does not not meet our performance criteria for resuming from suspend, but suspend/resume is functional and other functionality is not affected.

MMC Cards

The card reader does not work with MMC cards. SD and SDHC cards, however, should work as expected.

Hybrid Graphics

Some versions of this system come with two different graphics processors: an Intel UMA on-board adapter and an additional GPU from either nVidia or ATI. On this system, only the discrete graphics chip has been tested and certified. The use of the additional GPU is not supported for this release.
