HP Compaq Presario V4000

 

The attractive Compaq Presario V4000 delivers good performance and a complete set of basic features, but it comes up a bit short on battery life.

Attractive design; PCI Express slot; LightScribe double-layer optical drive; versatile flash card slot; great Wi-Fi range

Wide-screen 15.4-inch display isn't as bright as others'; lacks dedicated video memory; speakers offer thin sound

The Presario V4000 can handle tomorrow's digital demands with a PCI Express slot for high-speed expansion, though no cards are currently available (expect the first in the next few months). All the standard ports and connections are here, including...
