Summary: After having Mac laptops for years, this HP was a whole new experience for me. At first, I had a little difficulty adjusting to a new operating system but now I'm enjoying the HP Compaq Presario Notebook. I'm still learning new things everyday but hope to have this "conquered" soon! I bought this Notebook because when my Mac's video card went out, I needed a new and/or different laptop.

Summary: I have had this laptop for 4 years. Granted, it is on it's last leg and if I had more patience, I could deal with all of its little issues like: 1. having to contort the power cord into balloon animal shapes at the entrance to the jack and held in place with whatever is handy to actually get the thing to charge 2. The battery holds about 5 minutes worth of energy 3. the track pad only works if you use your WHOLE finger, not tip, whole.
Summary: see my other review......... -Too many issues to list -After light use, indoors only, screen flickers, key broken, overheats, 5 power supplies later, 3inch bar on right side of screen continuously, tons of inner software issues. Great doorstop if that's what you are looking to use it for.
Summary: I paid close to $375 for this laptop over 2 yrs ago. I have experienced very little trouble out of it;even after I accidentally leave it in the car during the winter. The fan does get fairly hot at times and the touchpad acts strange occasionally. It is a great product for the money i paid for a brand new laptop. I agree that is a great value.
Summary: I purchased this laptop 18 months ago and for the price, seemed like a great buy. I am now learning why it is well priced. I receved it with a few pixels burned out. I was not concerned. To me it wasn't worth packing up and shipping back. A few months later the computer kept shutting down. Here the motherboard was running so hot, it shut itself down so the motherboard would not fry. Upon inspecting the machine, the fan vent is on the bottom.
Summary: I have been using this computer for 6 to 12 hours a day for 17 months. When I received it it had a bad RAM chip, which took a month and a half to get replaced. Then they sent a stick of desktop ram (which HP let me keep). That is the end of my complaints. This has been a stellar machine, I use it heavily, including some gaming. This is no gaming laptop, but I have run Half Life 2 on higher settings with no problems. It runs hot, most laptops do.
Summary: About six months ago i needed to purchase a laptop for urgent schooling reasons. At the time I knew nearly nothing about computers (buying or using)Some how i fell upon this Compaq presario and the price wasn't too unreasonable at $600 so i went for it. The first bump in the road occured after the first month when i realized after about 25 "practice uses" for windows vista i was unable to use it anymore.
