Summary: This product was a replacement for a CQ60-210 owned previously. For the price this is an excellent laptop. It has a reasonably fast processor and operates well in the Windows Vista operating system. My only complaint was that the previous unit crashed for no appearent reason and was not able to be repaired. I had only owned the unit for three years.
Excerpt: I bought this laptop a few years ago and bought it at a great price. I was shopping around for laptops at Best Buy when I found this one. At the time I thought it was a good deal. I 've only had it for about 3 years, and it's very slow now. When I first got it, it worked fine, it was nice and shiny and fast. Now I almost regret buying this one over a more expensive one. I needed it for college, and this computer is actually quite bulky and heavy.
Excerpt: I bought this computer on sale at Best Buy on sale and I absolutely love it. The picture quality is awesome and big! It's our main computer and is on almost 24/7 and we've had no problems with it. The key board is big and has the keypad (other laptop didn't) and the touchpad isn't as touchy as others we tried. Only thing I really wish it had was a better sound quality. This is definetly a great buy!
Excerpt: Got this about six months ago as a birthday present. I love how it works and how easy it was to set up. I have not had any problems with it and use it for both business and personal use. Much better than my old laptop that was another brand.

Excerpt: I bought this laptop for college. Overall, it is a good laptop and does what I need it to do. While it may not be the best thing for someone who is more advanced in technology than I am, it is a very good basic laptop.
Excerpt: This Compaq Presario CQ60 is a good basic machine for the money. Love the keyboard with numerals on the side, just like a regular keyboard. The wide screen is good for all apps. Seems to have good battery life compared to my older laptop. Not one of the lightest weight, but okay. Speed is above ave. for a laptop. In general, I like it!
Excerpt: My wife bought me this laptop for our anniversary. It is the first laptop I have ever had. Works great, plenty of memory and good processing speed. Layout is nice. The only issue is Vista, but that has nothing to do with the laptop itself. Its about 60 seconds from off to online.
