The Presario C500 laptop is great for intermediate users.

Excerpt: I received the Presario C500 laptop for Christmas of 2008. At first, I used it only when I was out of town. Once I got used to it, though, I started using it more and more at home. Now, I've given up my desktop completely. Eventually, I would like to upgrade to a faster computer, but for now, this model is everything I need. I do a lot of photo editing with PSPX2 and store a bazillion digital photos on the ample hard drive.

Excerpt: The Compaq Presario C500 Notebook PC laptop computer will take a lickin and keep on a clickin, i have to say that for it for sure, for mine has been dropped many times , and caught the cord on door knobs so many times i can't even count, i have twisted the wires together on the cord so much it is almost entirely taped back with black electrician tape, i have lost two buttons off of it , the number 2 and the number 3 button, but as you can see, it keeps on working even...
Summary: i bought mine at a local pawn shop and so far its been running great, except for having to order a charger. its still bone stock, but i do plan to upgrade. so for 300 its a nice machine for my first laptop.
Summary: Cherchant un ordinateur portable, j'ai trouvé ce Compaq Presario C500 à un bon prix et en promotions. Dès le premier coup d'œil, son design m'a plus : un gris métallisé, la écran (15,4") ni trop grand pour un PC portable, ni trop petit. Il offre aussi le Wi-Fi intégré, 3 ports USB bien placé (2 à gauche et 1 à droite) comparé à d'autres ordinateurs qui les ont à l'arrière.
Pros: Beau design, bon positionnement des prises, bonne qualité, bon rapport qualité/prix
