Summary: Look. Lets be honest here. This is a VERY SLOW LAPTOP. Ok? I tried to use chrome on it, and it worked until I had opened about 7 tabs, and from then on, whenever I opened chrome, it would take at least 2 hours to load. If it does manage to finally load don't count on quality speeds.Or even the mouse moving. you can search for one thing, and that's it.
Summary: Any laptop made during the last five years should be able to run a full featured browser without trouble. Not this one. I'm attempting to use Firefox 31 with no extensions. It took two minutes just to load the browser and another minute before anything would appear on the screen. Another 45 seconds to become responsive. Oh, wait...it's locked up. Chrome was no better. I experienced the same troubles with it. Can't run Libre Office.
Summary: I would be cautious of buying anything from this company. I am an IT professional and needed a test laptop, therefore, I bought this one at a reasonable price. I was able to plug in my extra keyboard and use the laptop screen. But when you type on the actual laptop keyboard, it skips, adds extra spaces and types in the wrong letter. I believe in what you do to others will come upon you as well. The bad thing is I cannot take it anywhere and use the keyboard.
Summary: This is a pretty nice laptop when it comes to using standard programs like microsoft office and video playback for the price. If you need to run heavy programs like AutoCAD or Labview it still works pretty well, you just would need to put it in high performance mode for optimal user experience in that regard.
Summary: I did not receive the product as advertised...the only thing matching the product description was that it was a 15.6 inch compaq notebook. The main hardware needed was a complete screen assembly, and so I received a working one with this purchase.
Summary: I feel like I was ripped off when I purchased this laptop. If you touch the screen while in use, the screen goes blank and you must reboot. It is extremely slow even with 4GB of ram. All of the rubber pads on the bottom fell off the first day. It now sits on the shelf and nobody in the family wants to use it. I am very disappointed with this laptop and wish I could get my money back. Shame on Compaq!
Great value for the price , Great name Brand & Well made product
