Compaq Presario CQ2009F Desktop PC

 

The Compaq Presario CQ2009F Desktop PC is a smart choice for anyone looking for a simple and reliable desktop PC which is easy-to-use and ready to plug and play the moment you open the box.

i call it a bargain, the best i've ever had

 

Small footprint, ultra-quiet, useful features. The XP platform is a bonus IMO

So far, the only odd thing I've noticed is that it refuses to stay in Standby. That may be a anti-virus issue though. The keyboard and mouse are a bit chintzy, but totally useable. The PC tower's build is top drawer

USB Problems on this machine

 

Small size

It appears, through testing along side another Windows XP SP3 machine, that the machine I received had significant USB problems. There are 4 USB ports, 2 on front, 2 on back. It appears that the 2 ports on the back only work at USB 1.0 speed and only...

Simple

 

Will run Quake III, Unreal Tournament, Golf ? easily. Lightscribe is always nice

With some hard core benchmarking this thing exceeded my expectations. Could be used as a decent media center. Fast, quiet and easy set up

Expansion would be nice but for a simple internet user its fast enough

Small, Attractive, Quick

 

Perfect price. Windows XP. Friendly setup.

Bought this PC for a friend who need a PC that takes up a small amount of place. This Compaq worked out perfect. This system perfect for Internet, Email, Managing Music, and Managing your Phone software

None so far

solid web/text/application PC

 

This a solid solution for anyone that is looking for a PC replacement when all your doing is running Browser/Office/Applications and not gaming or any application that takes a lot of CPU cycles.

small in every way. It comes with a DVD drive and XP Home views the Atom 230 as a dual core. It is very quite in comparison to older PCs that are around my office

It only has a single slot for DIMM Memory. I upgraded it to 2 Gig DIMM and that is all you can go, which is fine for the use

Don't let the size fool you

 

NewEgg charges the same price as Compaq's website, but NewEgg charges about half the price for 3-day UPS shipping, which is awesome.

It's super compact and fits on my desktop. It's relatively fast for anyone who is looking for a machine for documents, photos, e-mails, and web surfing (and I'm sure more). It's quiet (for the most part) and has an external power supply. Plus, it comes...

There isn't a lot of room to maneuver inside the unit and no place to add another drive bay. The other thing is that the fan will kick on for a few seconds really really high and then drop back down to normal speed. I assume that has something to do...

Compaq- SO SMALL!

 

Basically a netbook in a pc... NETTOP! ahhh haa! :D

I LOVE IT! It's quite spiffy with 1gb of ram, 160gb hd, an OPTICAL DRIVE! ( that was a biggy) and a 1.6ghz atom processor. I did order a wireless USB adaptor so I can recieve internet in my room. I was very aprehensive about buying this because of the...

None really, whats not to like.... AND there isnt a whole bunch of stuff pre- loaded either

COMPAQ CQ2009F(FQ652AA) Intel Atom 230 (1.6GHz) 1GB DDR2 160GB Intel GMA 950 Windows XP Home - Retail

 

I ordered late Monday night and received it early Wednesday morning...that's crazy!

First off, this is probably the tiniest tower i have ever seen. I ordered this for my neighbor because they needed a simple PC and they already had a monitor and stuff. I received it, opened it up and started downloading all the millions of windows...

None really. Its slow compared to what we see now a days but that's okay for what she needs this for

Consumer review by:

Compaq CQ2009F Desktop PC

 

This is not a bad computer at all. With the cheap price, it offers an alternative to those high priced machines dell and other popular manufacturers offer. It's not really fast though. I guess it's just because of the slow processor it has. I like it...
