HP Compaq Presario B1801TU

 

The HP Compaq Presario B1801TU, with its lightweight 1.6kg chassis and pleasing battery life would be a great companion for the road warrior, if not for its dismal performance when compared to competing offerings.

Attractive design ; Thin, lightweight chassis ; 4-in-1 card reader ; 802.11b/g and Bluetooth wireless connectivity ; Good battery life ; Pleasing support policy

Poor performance ; Glossy screen becomes annoyingly reflective ; Relatively expensive ; Lacks an instant-on feature

If it wasn't for its dismal performance, we'd have no problem recommending the B1801TU for mobile professionals and students alike due to its attractive, lightweight design, impressive battery life and rich feature-set. As it stands though, we suggest...

HP Compaq Presario B1801TU

 

Excellent value for money ($2000 or less). Small and feature packed with excellent WiFi and B/Tooth execution. Dissed by reviewers and loved by users!

Size, price, performance

Maybe the microphone and headphone sockets could be more easily identified

"A great package for the mobile user @ $500 less than the competition"

 

This is a great package if you are looking for something under 1.7kg - ultraportable.
