  • 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.
  • Pros: Quality keyboard, nice finish
  • Cons: Unreliable, poor customer service, heavy

droniee, Ciao
30 August 2005
  • 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...
  • Pros: Excellent display and great functionality
  • Cons: Battery power not as great as it could be

Me and my Laptop

21 May 2005
  • 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...
  • Pros: light, good spec, stylish
  • Cons: poor sound through the speakers

  • 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

HP/Compaq nx9010- Not brilliant, but satisfactory

henfinn, Ciao
26 November 2004
  • 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...
