This has been a great computer! Takes little space on my desk, too.

Summary: A great deal for a computer for my small desk and the newer version, the Compaq Presario CQ1-2025 20-Inch All-in-One Desktop Computer that amazon sells looks like an even better deal! Totally reliable, unlike some of my laptops. Would buy another one for sure, which I just might soon!
Summary: BUENOS DIAS SOY VENEZOLANO Y COMPRE LA COMPAQ PRESARIO CQ11020 ALL IN ONE PC, DE VERDAD EXCELENTE PRODUCTO, MUY ELEGANTE Y MODERNA, ES UNA MAQUINA QUE LA ESTOY USANDO Y HASTA LOS MOMENTOS NO PRESENTA DIFICULTADES.. DE VERDAD LA RECOMIENDO MUY BUEN PRODUCTO....
Summary: This computer was terrible from the beginning. When I installed Quicken, the desktop changed to static and could not be changed back. WHen I uninstalled Quicken, there was no turning back. I tried troubleshooting, but the screen image was so bad, I could barely read it. Back to Mac I go.
Summary: Shipping was fast however, when the product arrived the power button that starts the computer was "missing." Clearly something from the manufacturing side (the box was sealed). I called Amazon and they overnighted me a new one which was perfect. This PC is for my parents who winter in a small home in the south. It has a really nice display and I had no problem explaining to my parents how to set it up, and run it.
Summary: If you need a real decent computer at a great price this may do it for you. Sure if your a high power person needing the fastest and newest equiptment then this is not for you. It does do a fine job for all my needs, storing music ,photos and browsing the internet. I haven't tried the built in web cam, have knowticed the speaker volume not the best but I'm sure I could add some speakers on. Came with the older Windows but have checked with M.S.
Summary: I bought this computer for my parents who were looking for less clutter and wires on their desk. In that sense this computer definitely did an adequate job. I would have liked for it to have come with a wireless keyboard and mouse (you would think that would be standard with all-in-one computers), but I was able to find a relatively cheap set to include with my order.
Summary: The machine started up with no problems. Wireless hooked up as well. We needed xp for some older software that we still use. We have used it for over a month, once it froze on a web site, we rebooted with no problem. If this turns in to an issue, we will do a follow up review.
Summary: It meets my expectations. The 18.5 screen is great. I realize it is not cutting edge, but, for the price, I doubled my RAM and hard drive capacity, and the screen really is nice for live streaming off of Netflix. All-in-all - a great price/upgrade from my 2006 Compaq laptop. I paid $370 on Amazon - and that is a very good price for what you will get.
