  • 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.

Compaq Presario V4000 - not a beauty contest winner

TruthSeek..., Ciao

  • 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. The specs are decent and well worth the price - ...
  • Pros: Good value for money (decent specs at a strong price) and good after - sales support
  • Cons: Bad - looking, unreliable at times

  • 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. It has all I need for using it at home, I don't use a tower PC ...
  • Pros: Great screen
  • Cons: Not too light for travel

  • Summary: For the money I paid, you would pay twice that much for a Vaio and the difference would be negligable... It's an amazing laptop, I'm completely happy.

Pc Portátil bastante útil

Ciao
22 August 2007
  • Excerpt: 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.
  • Pros: Movilidad, Utilidad, Rendimiento
  • Cons: Ninguna hasta ahora
