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.
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.

Excerpt: This is a great computer. Let me start with that. And as you can tell from the title, there is onlt one thing I can find that is wrong with it. I am going to start with the Pros, then the Con. Pro I; Windows 7 The computer run windos 7 and works great. It seems like the computer was made for windows 7.

Excerpt: Just recently bought this Compaq Laptop. And I have to say, it's the best $300 I ever spent! It is soo cool. Its' light enough for me to carry around and it's super-fast! It takes no time to start up and navigate. Wish I were told about this Laptop a long time ago. I've struggled with a few Desktops that don't compare to this Laptop at all. I would deffinately recommend this to a friend!
Excerpt: I just recently bought the compaq cq56 from walmart for the amazing price of $298 which it was on sale from $348. Just in time for tax season :). So far I love everything about it from the size to the speed. When I bought it I thought it was just going to be a computer that would be slow but it would eventually get the job done, but so far the only thing that is slow is shut down (which I only shut it down right before I go to bed).
