Summary: I brought this product for my 16 year old son. It is to replace his old laptop which was windows xp,it only had 80gb. He saved his allowance money for months. He wanted more space and wanted to upgrade to windows 7. He loves it and is happy. Can't quite compare to others as yet, we just got it. But performance is good so far.
Excerpt: Okay, first off, kudos to their mothership, HP... I had received this in not so timely of a manner, but it was a replacement to my HP laptop purchased quite a few years ago, and this was their choice to send back 3 months after they received the defective laptop. Saying kudos is not sarcastic as my other laptop did work, when it wanted to, but it was quite old and HP still took care of owning up to issues.
Excerpt: I purchased this almost 8 months ago. In needed a pc for my school work but didnt have a lot of money to spend on it. This was a pretty good deal. So far, the only issue I have is the space bar sticks every now and then. However, I will recommend this to any student. Its very affordable and I am happy with it.
Summary: I LOVE MY LAPTOP! It works great. It has everything I wanted and needed except for Lightscribe and a light-up keyboard (not offered by Compaq). I like Compaq, because the delete key is in the upper right hand corner of the keyboard, easily found without having to look for it.
Summary: a good reliable notebook;delivering fast switching speed,great sound quality and exceptional visual effects;this notebook has the basic as well as some advanced operational features that can satify small and corporate business needs.
