Summary: I just want to say to all: do not buy! Compaq isn't even a real company anymore. You go to Compaq site and try to shop for computers, and it redirects to HP site. Yes, HP bought out compaq. But I mean that you don't even see compaqs on HP's site, either. Besides, there's no such thing as AMD Celeron processor! The Celeron was INTEL! So the specs on this item are a LIE. Also, Compaq uses very generic parts. The computer will fail very shortly after ordering it.
Summary: I bought this for general serfing. Key board making loos coupling noices in such a short time !! Not a high quality laptop. hang very often, few of the program - surprisingly - a mail in browser strugle to open!! Dont buy this..though sounds like value for money , it is not.
Summary: The laptop was delivered and not signed for by myself, instead it was given to neighbour, who I do not know and no note left to where it was, I had to look on tracking to find out what had happened. And I didn't get the laptop to the following day. Just as well that neighbour was honest.
Summary: The laptop as a machine is fine and adequate for the specification I require. The only problem is the Windows 8 software which is taking some getting used to. I am not impressed by the way the computer manufacturer has programmed the machine to divert to web pages associated with purchasing on-line products and services when viewing a function on the machine. The courier lost the original machine due to be delivered on the Tuesday of that week.
Summary: The computer is ok, what I expected when ordered.What I failed to see that it was loaded with Windows 8. I hate windows 8 having used XP before, which I got on well with, but this new system drives me crazy. The sooner I change it to say Wndows 7 the better.
