Only good for general use

  • Summary: If you are sending emails, surfing the web, playing very very simple pc games (RPG2003, DOSbox, scummvm, audiosurf to name some that work for me), or writing/managing documents, this computer is for you. It's simple enough to handle simple things.

  • Summary: I have used this laptop for 2 years now, and it has been a very slow 2 years indeed. I can't tell you how slow this computer can be. It is definitely cheap, and has trouble running basic programs like word.

Doesn't come with a cam

Joseph Parker "precisionspared", Amazon

  • Summary: I have two of these computers. I bought one in the store for myself, because my old computer died, and when my girlfriend at the time broke hers, I bought this one for her, and even though it looks like it has a cam, it does not, though the computer itself functions well enough for its price.

  • Summary: I've read some of the other people's reviews here & some bear merit & others are complete horse... actually, I don't know if I can use that word here, but you get the idea. That said, I'm going to try to be as fair as possible with this review.

  • Summary: Yes, this is a cheap laptop. For someone looking to just get online and/or run some basic Office apps, this will be fine. But be prepared for a very slow experience. The technical specs on this thing make it sound better than it really is. The CQ56 is a slow machine.

  • Summary: I work from home and needed a replacement laptop that was inexpensive until I could afford a better one. The CQ56 serves that purpose just fine. Cons: The computer itself feels tinny when you type and you have to click awfully hard on the mouse buttons.
