Summary: I bought this Compaq 2 years ago, and almost immediately I started having issues. After about 2 weeks of use the machine started overheating after about 2 hours of sitting on my desk.. so I bought a cooling fan and it stopped overheating. Then just about every time I would turn the computer on, the screen would go back and I'd have to restart.. waste of time, especially when in a hurry before work or school.
Excellent Laptop CQ60-615DX for 18 months then died

Summary: Last Updated on 10/23/2011: I have owned DELL, Toshiba & Acer laptops but this one is the best by far. We have it for about 18 months and do not have any problem until recently it died. The O/S does not even start. Anyway, the laptop is well-made. The screen size is right for us. The battery life outlasted any other laptops we had. Unlike Vista, Window 7 works well with the hardware configuration and the performance is responsive.
Summary: I bought this laptop because it was cheap($350) and I figured the quality would be decent because it was an HP/Compaq. My poor rating is based on several factors 1. The initial quality of the laptop, and 2. Dealing with HP's tech support. Within the 1st 6 months of owning this pc, I began having problems with my power adaptor. The cable wasn't fitting snugly into the side port, so the battery wasn't charging.
Summary: This computer at the onset is great. we actually love the physical computer. however, after about 10 uses, the Microsoft word program that came with the computer asked us to enter a product key for use. we entered the product key and it said the key was invalid. we called HP and waited 56 mins the first day and couldn't get anyone for help. the next day we waited at least 20 mins and finally got someone on the phone.

Summary: 2 Stars - Don't like it! A very close friend asked me to look at this laptop for him, he had it since 2009 & said it had basically ground to a halt I'm an experienced PC Technician - A+ qualified amongst others, so i did it as a favour to help him out. Immediately upon receipt of the machine ran a preliminary diagnostic to "spec" the machine & was disappointed to see the 1GB PC2 DDR2 5300MHz RAM, Single Core AMD Sempron @ 2.0GHz & miniscule 120GB "spinner" Toshiba Hard...
Excerpt: I bought mine in Jan 2009, and within a year it started playing up. If I didn't use it for a half hour or so, then it would go into standby mode, and then it wouldn't revive itself! The only thing you could do was hold the power button down and shut it off, take the power lead in, turn it over and give it a few pats on the back and then plug it back in again and hope for the best (this is what the guys at the computer shop told me to do!
Summary: voor mij nooit meer een compaq, alleen maar problemen met deze laptop. De laptop valt heel vaak uit omdat hij te warm wordt, dit ondanks dat we er een extra koeler onder gekocht hebben. Het opstarten duurt enorm lang en de laptop is traag. Spijt dat ik deze laptop ooit heb gekocht.
Cons: laptop valt uit omdat hij te warm wordt, opstarten duurt erg lang, laptop is traag
Summary: Heb hem nu 2.5 jaar. Nooit muziek mee gedownload of films en moest hem toch al de 2e maand terugbrengen omdat hij niet meer aan ging (iets met de D schijf). Een zware tegenvaller. Na een jaar kon ik hem niet meer zonder netstroom gebruiken. Na anderhalf jaar viel hij uit bij het heet worden (na ongeveer een uur gebruik). Nu valt hij soms na een kwartier al uit en is ontzettend langzaam met sites openen en met meerdere programma's open.
