Very good for standard use.

  • 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 am going to make the best of the item because I needed one. It had allot of options that went along with it and I will make sure to use them all. the original program was still running on it so I will have to readjust a couple of thing but i will make it work.

surprisingly good for a cheap cr@p laptop

  • Summary: I've had this for almost two years now and it works a million times better than my last laptop (an HP that cost me $1,000 a couple years earlier). I can't really complain about it, except the stupid touch pad is hard to use and bruises my fingers, oh, and the sound card is terrible, I mean C'MON. Any music you play, even through high quality speakers, will sound like absolute crap. Other than that I haven't had any issues with it.

  • 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.

Good starter laptop

  • Summary: FYI, Compaq Presario CQ56-115dx can be upgraded to at least an AMD Athlon Phenom II N970 2.2 Ghz Quad Core Processor, even though the documents, and some articles in the HP forum and elsewhere state that the max upgrade is the AMD v-160. I have done this myself and have noticed little increase in CPU temps and little effect on battery life.
