HP Compaq Presario CQ5110F


As time goes on, technology becomes less expensive overall, and a prime example is The recent boom in netbooks and nettops shows how much demand there is for affordable computing, but traditional budget PCs are a better bet for many users. PCs like...

Inexpensive. Comes with dual core Athlon X2 processor. 3GB of memory. Nice styling

Crapware. Limited internal expansion. Included Norton Internet Security has only 60-days of updates. Older integrated graphics. No digital media card reader

One of the least expensive dual-core systems out there, the Compaq Presario CQ5110f brings the power of dual core to the sub $400 level.

Consumer review (

Its good for the money.


Fine for joe-blow, but not fine for a gamer. However, it does over a level of upgradability, but to get much more performance you'll need a new mobo and power supply. The power supply is the limiting factor for this computer in terms of graphic cards...

This is a good system. Contrary to what has been said, it is dual channel capable. Additionaly, of course the integrated card is bad, it is integrated, its what integrated cards are known for. However, keep in mind one could easily pay a grand for a...

No clue what AGPx16 is supposed to be according to a previous review. The competing product for us was a dell inspiron at 349$. The tradeoff is BTX with the dell and 3 gigs of RAM with the pre-sorry-o

3 gigs of RAM

The single PCI (normal pci) slot cannot accommodate our cheapo x1350 vidcards with dual dvi outputs, but they are mutant cards anyways

Price and Quality Dual Core 64 bit.


For the price, it is a great system. Registered a 3.0 in the Vista Index. Gaming graphics are holding the machine back. the next lowest score was the Aero. (3.6) BUT it does have a APGx16 slot for Graphics Upgrades.

System was Very well packed. Lots of protection around the PC ; System started up without any problems ; 10 minute setup ; Shipped and delivered as promised ; Very good system for the price ; Still haven't tested the dual layer DVD burner, but its next...

Loaded with easily removable nag software ; Ask you go sign up for more than 5 different services ; on your first startup ; No Operating System Disk ; It is stored in a partition of 12 gigs ; with about 1.2 gigs of wasted space ; You have to push the...
