Consumer review (newegg.com)

good machine for the price!

 

im super happy with my purchase so far.

latest technoligy for a pretty good price, builting cam & mic, lite scribe, vista, tons of internal space for multipal programs. its pretty fast! light weight compared to my other laptop (hp pavillion)

ive been using XP for the longest time and was super scarred to use Vista. It wasnt that hard to get around doing things, takes a little adjusting to, but overall not to bad. The keybord isnt that sterdy, i dont know if its only my laptop, but as im...

Great Price with mega features

 

This is a modern computer; so do not expect it to work with obsolete stuff.

Great deal, attractive, lightweight, large monitor, nearly full size keyboard. Loaded with features. USB ports on BOTH sides

none, unless you expected more at this bargain price

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Previous poster mistaken...

 

The reason that this device only shows 3.25 GB of 4 GB of ram is because of the size of an integer in a 32 bit operating system only allows memory arrays of 4GB total. Because Windows uses a pagefile, that gets deducted from the available system...

17" screen, 3 GB RAM, Decent size HDD

Pentium dual core, not core 2

Consumer review (newegg.com)

A lot of laptop for the price.

 

OK, many lappy's are coming with 3gb of memory. This is a 1gb stick and 2gb stick. This disables dual channel memory on this Compaq. When I added a 2gb stick and pulled the 1 gigger.....POW, dual channel shows per CPU-Z (search Google - good app). Why...

Quility chassis and nice, big screen. Good specs for the price. I love a 17" WS, but I don't carry my laptop around

4gb of memory makes more sense....see below
