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.
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've bought this laptop new, and it has since given me nothing but trouble. And from reading the web, the issues encountered are very common. First of all the fan is prone to clogging and the paste used to cool the processort is badly applied so overheating is common.
Summary: ( I am a teenage girl, writing a review on my mothers account. Just saying.) I did NOT buy this product from Amazon, I purchased it at Walmart since it was a very good price. I have had the product for about a year, and it was great. I only used the internet on it, not buying any games.
Summary: I purchased this notebook for my 17 yr old daughter. She finds it to be slow loading/watchin videos. It does not contain any Word documents on it which defeats one of the reasons for purchasing it-school work. Also the battery life is not very long.
Summary: I've had this computer for a little over a year and it has seriously gone downhill lately and within the past few months.I liked it at first, despite the fact that it doesn't have a webcam :(, but no longer consider it to be a good purchase.
Low price shouldn't mean low quality--but it does.

Summary: I have an old Samsung flip phone that cost around $30. It has survived my abuse for more than a year, including being dropped into a koi pond. It was cheap, but it is very well-made and reliable. The point of this digression is that a small price tag doesn't have to imply poor-quality merchandise.
Summary: is really a jumbo netbook with dvd with performance only little better than intel atom. Fortunately for people that are in market now there's many new generation of much faster processor/video alternative with good battery life.
Summary: As with many others, I received my Presario CQ56-115DX as a replacement in the NVIDIA settlement. What a downgrade from a dv6000! That aside, it's a cheap but servicable computer for a cheap retail price. Multitasking is almost overwhelming for it.
