Fingerprint sensor is a purchase OPTION available on some models.

(2)Fingerprint reader (select products only)

Allows a fingerprint logon to Windows, instead of a password logon.▲To use the fingerprint reader, place your finger on the fingerprint reader until it reads your fingerprint.



If your model does not include the fingerprint sensor, the little box is just a "place holder" cover for where the sensor would be installed.


What else?

General Example

Open PartSurfer


Set your Country / Region


Use PartSurfer website with your machine's serial number to check what is included.
