Very poor laptop.

  • Summary: I got this laptop for school, and it worked great...at first. It has a terrible battery life and very poor screen quality. Not to mention games. the cooling system is busted and the processor cant handle more than 2 browsing windows open. cheap laptop + HP = poor buy.

  • Summary: this laptop has major flaws. the battery life. i had it for 10 months and the battery lasted 30-40 minutes. but, it charges fast. the cooling unit is rubbish. you can have it in your lap for 20 minutes, and it will be an oven. there is only 1 cooling vent/fan. it over heats too fast.

You can do so much better than this with the same money.

  • Summary: I bought my CQ62 in spite of the warnings because I found a "great deal". It worked exactly as expected out of the box, but I was immediately disappointed by a slight curve in the key board. The keys in the center of the top half of the keyboard were all slightly lower than the others.

HP Does Not Mean Quality

Drew Samson, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought one of these puppies a week or so ago and I had to exchange it because of fan problems. Now I have another one -- and guess what? More problems. The screen is slightly dark on the right (annoying but not horrendous) and the fan it still crap; it makes an irritating humming noise.

  • Summary: The keyboard does not have a separate number pad on the right so you have to use only the numbers on top. Compared to an Acer that is the same size the Acer had the number key pad on the side and the keyboard keys were the same size not smaller.

HoHum Laptop

  • Summary: This thing is pretty slow and has issues my 3 year old Compaq doesn't have. The installed wi-fi card/software is slower and more prone to timed out issues from my ATT wireless router/modem. Keys are almost unreadable due to small fonts. For $260. thats what you get!

Look for Something Else

  • Summary: I had an economical Compaq all-in-one and was very happy with that so I bought this one and hate it. The touch pad is an absolute joke. A small, undefined area for scrolling and a very narrow bar for clicking make it a nightmare to navigate through pages and to drag and drop.

  • Summary: This laptop is a bit slow, but I cant complain for $348. I bought a Compaq for my sister that was similar to this one, except it had the keypad and an extra 1GB of memory and I only paid an extra $30 and it was worth it. It doesnt feel as cheap as this one and its much faster.
