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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I really like this laptop. Performance wise it is really good - much better than I expected. The HP install of additional software is minorly intrusive, but it's easy to disable or uninstall the stuff that I didn't want.
Summary: This laptop lasted exactly 50 days. It ran hot, constantly kicked on a very noisy fan, made grinding noises, had internet connection problems, and was very slow. It died on the 50th day. I ran a hard drive test and found that it had failed.
