Was good - til it blew apart

MyPenName, Amazon
20 October 2012
  • Summary: I've had this laptop for almost 3 years. It actually performs well for my needs. I have it on about 15 hours a day. It is still fast and does everything I need it to. I do not do any heavy gaming though, just web browsing, email, movies, music, online games like Pogo, etc.

Mostly okay, with some issues that I wish I knew about.

  • Summary: This computer is slow, but it does work well for the price. The biggest thing for me, is I recently upgraded my home network to gigabit, expecting to be able to connect this laptop, since it has an nForce 10/100/1000 mbps network connection.

Great for low budget PC's not for use with heavy resource software

  • Summary: I bought this computer almost a year and a half ago. Since then, I've had to get the battery and the cooling fan replaced. I will not lie, it is a good computer for a price of 329.99 but I would not pay more than 350.00 dlls for it, also HP support (since they now own Compaq) was great and helped me...

Decent laptop for price, but battery life is quite poor

John, Amazon
13 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this to replace a six year old Gateway laptop. Overall, this is a good value for the price. Runs everything I need quite well. My primary complaint is battery life. It's rated at 4 hours, but I've yet to get 2 hours using only for Excel, word processing and internet access.

Very poor AC adaptor design, repeatedly breaks !!

Patrick Corley, Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: I have always favoured Compaq Laptops. However, one silly design flaw can be really offputting. The AC / DC adaptor for this series of laptops keeps breaking because there is too much mechanical stress on the point where it plugs into the laptop.

A laptop that comes up a little short

Kevin Meade, Amazon
18 February 2010
  • Summary: My problems with this laptop: 1) it uses the intel graphics adapter. Yes, this laptop like all entry level laptops, was not really meant for gaming but lets face it, with today's technology, all entry level laptops can in fact play any game except for those out in the last year, when given enough of...

  • Excerpt: What I know and understand about the inner workings of a laptop or computer can be written in large capitals around the milled edge of a postage stamp; but then, I do not need to know the inner workings of a car to be able to drive one, and so it is with my laptop, a Compaq CQ60 -305EA Laptop.
  • Pros: Good, wide, flat and clearly marked keyboard keys
  • Cons: Glossy finish shows finger marks and dust

Compaq Laptop

SJ Welsted "SJ Welsted", Amazon
6 December 2010
  • Summary: I liked the fact that there is lots of USB ports and a cd writer. Haven't been able to use the lightscribe as need to buy the special disks. Then only things is the fan is in an odd place and it doesn't cool very well and I often have to prop the laptop on something or against something to allow the...

Despite impressive performance figures and statistics, this laptop is not the most sound investment.

  • Excerpt: The Compaq CQ60 stands out for the abundance of features & performance amidst other laptops in its price bracket. Having owned the Compaq for a couple years, it is not surprising that the model is still on the market.
