NOTES:
1 The Dell Latitude CPi A-Series does not support memory modules from older models of Dell portable computers, such as the Latitude XP, XPi CD, or LM.
2 Battery performance features such as charge time and life span can vary according to the conditions under which the computer and battery are used.
3 Weight shown is with a hard-disk drive, a battery in the battery bay, a diskette drive in the modular bay, and one memory module. Your computer might weigh more or less, depending on its configuration. The maximum weight of the Dell Latitude CPi  A366XT is 2.81 kg (6.2 lb), which includes a hard-disk drive, two batteries, and two memory modules. The minimum weight of a Latitude CPi A300ST is 2.4 kg (5.3 lb), which includes a hard-disk drive, a battery in the battery bay, the travel module in the modular bay, and one memory module.
4 Measured with the hard-disk drive in head-parked position.
