HP Compaq Business Notebook nc4000


The HP/Compaq collaboration is bearing fruit: The new HP Compaq Business Notebook nc4000 is a well-designed 3.7-pound ultraportable that's a good choice if you want manageability and consistency across a corporate line.

Wireless performance was good, though with some anomalies. With 802.11b, speed was fine at distances even out to 160 feet, where the nc4000 outpaced the Dell entry. But at close distances (60 feet or less) with 802.11g, throughput was relatively low;...

HP Compaq Business nc4000 Intel Pentium M 1.6GHz Refurbished Laptop Computer


The HP Compaq nc4000 is a well rounded business oriented laptop computer.

You can typically save up to 30% on a refurbished computer. And they have no sign that they have been used before and come with a fresh warranty.

Great Value!


On a BIG side note: I do not own the models stated above. I actually own a Presario C700 series laptop. I actually called HP and spoke to a tech that told me that this battery did not fit my model, but I knew better :) after looking over the unit from...

I picked one of these OEM extended life batteries a year and a half ago. One of the best purchases you can make for yourself ; For the first year I had over six hours of battery life with heavy usage. It has since slowly declined but at almost the 2...

It does make the laptop heavier but very well worth the sacrifice

Good Battery Life!


Newegg has this part at almost half price of HP's price. VERY good buy here.

On a DV2200 the battery last somewhere around 8 hours under normal usage. If you start watching DVDs etc you will see about 4-5 hours of usage which is typical. The "bump" it put on the bottom of the laptop also allows it to breath better and makes it...

Awesome Battery!!


I have had my computer for 3 & 1/2 years and my battery just gave up the ghost. It has worked great for a very long period. That is why I don't mind reinvesting in one

None, really

Works Well


extra weight vs more battery life. your call. but i want more battery life

new battery lasts long. especially with larger capacity

if you're a weak person, you might not like the extra weight

Worked well while it lasted


I have very rarely found someone else with this issue, and this type of battery, so take from it what you will.

This battery lasted me the full 8hrs listed, for a good year! This was after having treated it horribly, as was part of my 'everyday' computer

After about a year, the battery STEADILY declined It's maximum life. A month after the yearly period, the battery life was maybe an hour. This was with good luck, and after more knowledge of currently handling a battery of this type. Now, here I am...

Consumer review (

Works as advertised


Not a con so much as an observation: the battery pack adds a noticeable amount to the weight of the laptop. It's a fair trade off when the length of run time the battery allows is taken in to account. Still, it's something to consider if one is...

I bought this to replace the original battery that would no longer hold a charge. Not only does it last longer, but the size, as others have said, adds almost two inches to the height of the back of the computer, which tilts the computer and keyboard...

The only con I've run across is the fit of the battery in the case. While it snaps in place solidly, it feels a little loose when holding the laptop. Not loose as though it's going to fall out, but loose like it's not quite seated right
