Summary: I got this computer when I was entering 6th grade. My father and I have always been into computers and although I hadn't known it at the time, he was looking out for me by purchasing this for me on my birthday. I've been on this computer for school work, games, fiddling with computer things. Everything worked. From Sims 3 games to ten page essays this laptop has been fantastic. I've protected it with Norton, and and I pamper my computers.
Summary: In general this laptop gets things done at a basic rate. The start up time is quite fast, and the internet connects great anywhere in the house. As long as the computer is not used for heavy duty work requiring multiple programs running at once, anyone would love this computer. It also has a great webcam and a easy to use keyboard. I do not like the mouse-pad though so I had to get a wireless mouse. It just isn't comfortable to use like other laptops.

Summary: I bought this product because the price was right but it had three issues that would have cost me $200 to fix to be able to use it. I feel that this should have been revealed before hand otherwise I would not have had to send it back.
Excerpt: I recently bought my Compaq Presario laptop a couple months ago for school and I absolutely love it. It has the new windows 7, a 250 gigabite hard drive 3 gigabites of ram, and just looks great in general. I love it because It has a matted finish which keeps it from getting all diry and scuffed up all the time like most other laptops (especially toshiba). The sound Quality on the laptop has been okay, but it is definetly NOT a music laptop at all.
Excerpt: I have had this laptop for a little over five months now and am very pleased with it. I originally bought it to use for online college classes and the usual internet surfing. It has performed as well or better than my previos laptop which costs four times as much as this laptop cost. The screen is bright and clear. The processor is fast. It has plenty of memory for the average computer user. I love the windows 7 operating system!
Compaq cq62, better than the old, could use a bit more

Excerpt: I have owned this laptop for almost a year now, and thus far it hadn't crashed once. the battery life is good, and the screen is much bigger than my old laptop, a toshiba satellite L25. the mousepad is a bit awkward at first, but once you learn where the edges are, it gets much easier. my only real complaint is how the contrast settings on the screen are set- whites end up very washed out and it's hard to find the menu to change it.
