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.

Excerpt: I have been using this laptop for sometime now without any problem at all, it's got speed, stability and has never failed me not even for a single time, I initially went for Advent through the PC world, the two Advent's that were changed were all having fan problem, I guess may be the batch produced at the time were all having the same problem Techguys had to change it to this Compaq presario CQ50 and I am enjoying it, I have been using it for more than 6 months now, I...
Compaq CQ50, my first laptop and I'll never look back

Excerpt: I’ve always had desktop computers before and when mine broke recently I decided enough was enough and I should get a new one. Looking in the shops a laptop seemed the best option. As I’m a student the money aspect was a big issue. I was shocked at how much the computers cost in general but was convinced to go for this middle of the range model by my parents and I’m very glad they did.
Pros: good memory, can handle a lot at once, easy to use straight away
Cons: Not many features included (just the basics), battery runs out within 2 hours
Excerpt: This is a great value for money laptop. It is great as an everyday home-use computer although not very good for any games from what I have found out. The NVidia graphics are excellent and the screen is perfect for HD. Used the lightscribe function on the laptop many times and is very handy for labelling if you have the time as it takes around 30 min to burn a label. Wireless is very easy to set-up and it can find networks within seconds.
Pros: Value for money, decent processor, lots of functionality
Excerpt: I find his laptop to be wonderful in it's price range. Speed? More than enough for music creation and watching vids. More than enough power for web surfing, and the detail reports I need to write ocassionally. My olny complaint is Vista itself. Pretty, but like that beauty you dated in high school, pretty doesn't always cut t. Bu the hardware is great, especially for the 394.99 I paid for it at Walmart.
Excerpt: I bought this laptop in October to replace my old IBM which was awful. This laptop has an excellent bright screen which can play movies in widescreen. The wireless feature is so easy to use - I set up my internet without a fuss and I always connect in seconds once I've switched my laptop on. The CQ50 comes with Vista which is really easy to use and much more modern and stylish compared to XP.
