HP Compaq nc6400 Review (pics, specs)

 

This is a review of HP Compaq nc6400, a thin-and-light 14.1 widescreen notebook in the business line. Its light-weight and features match those of a comparable ThinkPad Z61t.

Build quality Price Good performance Standard 3 Year warranty Matt screen Solid quiet keyboard with convenient layout Good-sounding speakers Looks No junk software Light-weight

Asymmetrical placement of speakers No customized configuration Small touchpad buttons Limited wrist area

Though they come in varying sizes and capabilities, there are at least ten HP Compaq models that have an almost identical industrial design. Let's just say it can get very difficult to tell them apart. The nc6400 may not look all that different from...

Lightweight. Integrated EV-DO. Good set of security features

Pointing stick is far behind Lenovo's TrackPoint. You'll need to upgrade the RAM

If you want a good size screen and integrated 3G from your business notebook then you need to look at the nc6400.
