Consumer review by: Coach D, Georgia (

Five star equiptment!! Sans Vista


It took 30 hours but I finally figured out how to downgrade to XP despite the Compaq site saying it was not possible. I found the drivers for everything and now it works like a charm. This is definitely worth the $399 price.

This is a very attractive piece of equipment out of the box. The sleek silver finish is very attractive. The 15.4 inch screen is very bright, crisp, and pleasing to the eye

Vista is the main issue holding this computer back. It drags along and the wait times are comparable to the 175MHz computers of the 90s. The only design flaw is the scroll sensor on the mousepad is too small for larger fingers
