HP Compaq Business nx7010


Review: The HP Compaq Business Notebook nx7010 is a well-designed general-use laptop, with a large, responsive keyboard and easy access to key controls and ports. Though the display's colors are a bit subdued, the 15-inch-wide LCD screen offers...

This fast notebook has long battery life and an impressive wide-format LCD with very high resolution

At more than six pounds, it's a bit heavy. Fixed optical drive is not upgradable

The nx7010 has the power and the features to serve as your sole PC, and it offers more mobility than a typical desktop replacement.

Good, even though it's obsolete


It started out in life as a laptop to run a home business, Us kids to do homework on, I even remember the day mum brought it home back in 2005. It was on charge for it's whole life which absolutely killed the battery. The laptop started to get outdated...

1680x1050 LCD display, nice speakers, runs Ubuntu 10.10 with no flaws, runs an external monitor at 1280x1024 with a 64mb mobility radeon 9200

Some days it constantly BSOD's but must days it's fine. Maybe because from old age
