Compaq NW8240 Laptop

 

Attention, graphics pros: The 6-pound Compaq nw8240 combines portable computing with a 15.4-inch 1920-by-1200-resolution (WUXGA) wide screen powered by ATI's powerful Mobility Fire GL V5000 graphics chip. The hitch: Its high resolution makes small...

High-resolution screen

Poor audio

The nw8240's audio output isn't particularly loud, but the unit includes volume buttons and speakers that are strong enough to support a presentation to a small group

Light widescreen with detailed resolution, CAD zoom button and secondary hard drive option aims for graphics editors.

Quality

 

I would say if you like 15" screens and arn't buying it for intense graphic or sound quality then this is one of the better ones out there.

Fast processor, bright screen (screen gets darker when using battery), good battery life, works with most games (WoW, Counter Strike, Halo, etc.), very good wireless connection, great sound with headphones, does not overheat much

Speakers don't turn up very loud (although most laptop speakers don't), hard drive is slow and doesn't hold much

None so far
