A great, cheaply priced laptop which functions adequately, for somebody who casually uses a laptop.

  • Excerpt: The laptop I currently have is the Compaq CQ70. I have to admit that the specs... they're not so impressive. The laptop was purchased over 5 years ago. We had very little knowledge of laptops and thus we brought this. The screen is wonderful.

Big, slow, clunky laptop that can't cope with everyday use.

  • Excerpt: I got this laptop as a Christmas present in 2010. First impressions: It was a rather large, heavy and thick laptop, with a shiny black finish on the outside. The keyboard was very comfortable and it came with the number pad at the side. The trackpad is responsive but a bit clunky.

  • Summary: its not a bad computer for the price that i paid, however it is pretty heavy compared to other laptops. The most annoying thing is that it heats up on the bottom left side. Besides that i have no problem. It came with vista crap, so i updated it to windows 7 and runs fine.
  • Pros: Runs good
  • Cons: heavy

  • Summary: I find this an excellent laptop and it hasn't let me down after 3 years. Cost me slightly more than the price it is now but it's been worth every penny. Can't really understand that the review said that it's not very good for gaming as it works well for me and I have little problems using the...

  • Summary: Im using it for 5 months now and it still runs great, i didn't have difficulties with it, i'll see if what the others said about the screen in the next 3 months and maybe i'll come back with a comment. I would recomend it to anyone who likes a big screen. Quite good for watching movies :)
  • Pros: It runs great with windows 7, and i use it allot for designing and photo editing and lots of other aplications from adobe (photoshop, ilustrator, etc))

  • Excerpt: I needed a new laptop as a result of my last one practically imploding in on itself when the battery decided that its life had become unbearable and suicide was the only option. It did leave me a note absolving me of guilt so I didn't feel too bad rushing out and immediately buying a new one.
  • Pros: Very reliable, fast processing speeds, quality graphics and sounds, easy wireless connectivity
  • Cons: Decline in processing speeds and battery life over time, fan overheats, difficult to use in transi
