Processor Intel 4th Generation Core?i5 (Also known as the CPU). The part of the computer that interprets and executes instructions. Think of it as the brain of the computer.
Processor Speed 2.5GHz (with Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz) How fast a computer processor carries out instructions. In general, faster is better, but processor speeds across brands may not be equivalent (i.e., a 3.0GHz AMD processor may not be the same speed as a 3.0GHz Intel processor).
Display Type LCD Technology used to display text and images on the screen. Computer monitors, notebook computers, mobile DVD players and other devices typically use LCD (flat-panel liquid crystal displays) screens.
Screen Size (Measured Diagonally) 17.3" Size of the screen, in inches, measured diagonally from corner to corner.
Cache Memory 3MB A small segment of memory that stores frequently used information for fast access by the processor, improving response time.
System Memory (RAM) 8GB The memory a computer uses to run its operating system, applications and active data files. Greater amounts of RAM improve speed and enable more applications to run at once.
System Memory (RAM) Expandable To Nonexpandable Maximum amount of memory a computer can support (as opposed to the amount that comes preinstalled).
Type of Memory (RAM) DDR3L
Hard Drive Type SATA Hard drives are classified based on the interface they use to connect to a computer. Common interfaces for internal hard drives include EIDE, PATA (also known as, ATA and IDE), SATA and SCSI. Common interfaces for external hard drives include USB 2.0, FireWire and eSATA.
Computer Hard Drive Size 1TB Capacity for storing programs, photos, video, music and other electronic information. Hard drive capacities range from a few gigabytes to several hundred.
Optical Drive DVD?RW/CD-RW
Optical Drive Speeds Drive speeds not specified Fastest speeds at which the drive can write, rewrite and read data.
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 840M Type of graphics (video) adapter (usually built into the motherboard), identified by manufacturer and model.
Video Memory 2GB DDR3 (dedicated) Manages display functions, including screen refresh rates, resolution and color. The more video memory a computer has, the better graphics and video will look.

Operating System Windows 8.1 The master software that controls hardware functions and provides a platform on top of which any software applications will run. Commonly used systems include Microsoft Windows, Mac OS and Chrome OS for computers; Android, Apple iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phone for cell phones; and Android, Apple iOS and Windows for tablets.
Operating System Bit Version 64-bit The terms "32-bit" and "64-bit" refer to the way a computer's processor (CPU) handles information. A 64-bit operating system handles large amounts of system memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system.
Most software programs designed for a 32-bit operating system will work on the 64-bit version, with the exception of many antivirus programs. However, if a program is designed for a 64-bit operating system, it is not backwards-compatible with a 32-bit version.
Device drivers designed for a 32-bit system will not work on computers running a 64-bit operating system. Similarly, drivers designed for a 64-bit system will not work with a 32-bit version.
