Excerpt: My company presented me with a HP Compaq lap top for work use in May 2005 with the Windows XP operating system loaded on it & this is a tale of those two & half years of daily use. The cost at the time this lap top was on the market was £999.99.
Excerpt: I was given this machine, brand new, by my employers 2 years ago, so it must be cheap. So far, I have had a new battery and new hard drive. It crashes about 3-4 times a day and has done since new, nobody can work out why.
Excerpt: I bought this laptop early Jan 2004 with much regrets later as the intel centrino came just a few weeks later. Weighing at 3.5kg and with the dimensions of: Width 32.9 cm, Depth 27.2 cm, Height 4.9 cm, it is rather bulky and inconvenient to carry around.
Pros: Reasonable priced, robust, good specifications
Cons: Heavy, side buttons spoil easily, slow start up
Excerpt: I purchased the Compax nx9010 on a whim last year & its one of my best buys ever. The hard drive appears to have been eaten up by iTunes but I'm reassured that its easy enough to connect extra HDD to laptops nowadays - saying that, it still runs beautifully and start-up time is far quicker than with...
Excerpt: I never bought my NX9010 by choice - my ThinkPad got damaged and my home insurance replaced it with one of these. I've had it a full year now so it has had a proper field test! The only problems I have had so far have been software related… Sometimes when I switched it on, the machine just would not...
Excerpt: When I got my HP NX9010 Laptop in July 2004 I was really excited. Since then that has faded a little bit but I would still recommend it, and wouldn't swap mine. The model I have is the HP nx9010 with 256MB of RAM (+ added 256MB) and a 2.66 GHz P4 processor.
Pros: Comfortable keyboard, One touch buttons, volume buttons on the right side . IR, S - Video
Cons: Heavy, slow performer, slow 3D graphics, 2 hrs battery life, location of fan
Excerpt: I receieved the nx9010 as a birthday gift end of March last year whilst working in Blantyre, Malawi, and I must it arived at the right time too as the laptop I was using an IBM E600 screen blew off due to a power surge.
Pros: Floppy drive, which is now becoming quite rare
Cons: A bit heavy (due to floppy) and battery life wears quick
Excerpt: I am an ICT technician, so obviously I come accross so many different makes and models of pc and laptop. None has managed to impress me however, the way this stunning piece of divine technical engineering has done! The Laptop has a very modern look to it.
Excerpt: Power Cable: The power cable connection into the back of the laptop is very loose and often falls out without me noticing, leading to untimely warnings of Low/Critical Battery. Also, it would have been nice if the cable came with one of those nifty little velcro straps to secure it once you have...
Excerpt: I decided it was about time to get a laptop when Id finally had enough of lugging my huge pc everytime I moved house (which is about every other month!) so I needed something cheap but something good. After a long time searching online I came across this laptop.
