Excerpt: I purchased the Compaq Presario C500 to simply write school papers and do a little internet surfing. After using the laptop for over 2 years the computer still runs like it is new. At the time it was the cheapest available laptop with the Windows Vista operating system. Although I was skeptical about the computer running on the Vista operating system, I did not have any problems at all with this machine.
Summary: I have had this laptop for over 2 years now, it came with vista home basic out the box and after a year and a half I uninstalled it. It is now running Windows 7 Ultimate and Mac OSX 10.5.6 well. Windows 7 works like a charm. Never upgraded it, came with 1.73 GHz and 80GB Hard Drive, 512mb RAM.
Summary: I thought this was a horrible computer, which it is if you don't get the extra 2GB of ram, now the laptop can now run vista and chat without crashing. It's an extra 80 bucks if you go to frys. Now I love this computer.
Cons: if you don't get more ram space, you're likely to have a horrible laptop.

Summary: Tout d'abord, nous avons un ordi fixe, mais on recherchait un portable, pour le salon ou de pouvoir le prendre n'importe où! Nous avons trouvé celui-ci qui nous conviens très bien, de plus il était en promos. Au niveau systéme d'exploitation nous avons le Windows Vista Basic, pour faire ce qu'on a faire ça suffit largement ( Comptes, internet, word......). Dans l'ensemble c'est un très bon produit!
