Summary: For the first couple of months the Compaq Presario worked perfectly but after 5 months or so it started slowing down so I transferred everything onto an external hard drive and formatted the whole laptop. After format the speed and everything about this laptop has gone down hill! I know that I could buy an extra RAM stick and stick it in the motherboard but with all the screws and keys falling off I don't really see the point of wasting any money on accessories for this...
Pros: Lasted 4 years I guess.
Cons: Mainly.. The battery life, speed and physical laptop structure.
Excerpt: I agree that this notebook is not good on the eyes but I have had one for over 3 yrs and it has never failed me yet.It just keeps on ticking.I know it's been upgraded since I bought it but i certainly have no regrets and when I do upgrade I will definately get another presario.I certainly am not willing to compromise durability for style..
Excerpt: this is my second laptop, before i take IBM but this one its cheaper that's why i bought this one, compaq presario v2000, i like the quality of his sound, and the wide screen comfortable enough to watch a movie and saw the documents for my work, the keyboard in my opinion Compaq and HP having a great keyboard ever!
Compaq Presario V4000 - not a beauty contest winner

Excerpt: I guess it is safe to say the design will never win any awards. It looks chunky and the color combination (all silver inside and matt black on the outside) doesn't look very appealing. The buttons on the touch-pad feel rubbery and offer a good touch, but it attracts dirt, is nearly impossible to clean. Ditto for the silver finish too...starts to rub off after a few months and ends looking ancient.
Pros: Good value for money (decent specs at a strong price) and good after - sales support
Excerpt: I have had this laptop for about a year and a half and it is still going strong. I have the widescreen version which is great for viewing DVD's and digital photos. The built in wireless is great as I can use it anywhere at home. Even with loads of pics and stuff I have loads of storage room left. The processing speed is great, I can play games and instant message with no slowing down.
Excerpt: I purchased this laptop back in February .It came with a router which configures to your computer so you can have wireless connection.I paid £769 for the laptop which might come across a bit extreme but that came with 3 years insurance,it is advisable if having wireless connections to have a firewall and virus software as it has been known that people have been using there next door neighbours internet connection!
Pros: easy to use can use it anywhere in house with wireless connection
Summary: Bueno pues aquí estoy de nuevo, estaba paseandome un poquito por aquí cuando he leído algo sobre mi portátil...en la primera opinión se quejan de un problema conla unidad de lectura y grabadora de cd/dvd...vaya, qué casualidad! a mí me ocurrió lo mismo aunque tengo que admitir que no fue a los 4 días, pero sí que me desapareció, parecía que elordenador no tuviera y ni siquiera reconocía los dvd de recuperación al iniciarlo.
Summary: Actualmente es mi herramienta de trabajo y comunicación. Este pc portátil lo utilizo de manera diaria para realizar trabajos, acumulación de datos, imagenes y para mi vida personal. Tiene la capacidad suficiente para el trabajo y vida privada. Si eres estudiante universitario y vives lejos de casa durante el curso, es muy buena alternativa para no depender de ordenadores públicos.
