Compaq Presario F730US Notebook -- Worth the Money AND MORE!

 

You get alot for your money

The weight ( 5.6 LBS.) is a bit heavy for a Notebook.

Compaq does it again

 

I have owned previous Compaq Presarios and this one is by far one of the best. It has a very, very light design and a perfectly designed keyboard.
