"Presario 5221 ROCKS!!!!!!!!"

COMPAQ by its name alone. This recent launch of the compaq company is gathered with the most recent features. Its good looking and the main plus of compaq PC's are that its got the facility of attaching the speakers to the monitors side, giving it a very nice look again. As being the user of a compaq PC and being used compaq laptops, i would sugest anyone to go for the same. It has got all recent features and is very easy to install it yourself. The guide manual is very easy to understand and follow. Any person opting to buy a PC can blindly choose compaq.And particularly this models serves all the essential need and puposes for a need to buy a PC........!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Welcome to Ciao! While not a rubbish review (whats here is very good) you could have in cluded a lot more (availability, price, included software etc). If you have a read around of other peoples reviews you'll soon get the hang of it and start earning some more money! If you need any help or advice don't hesitate to ask, just leave me a note in my guestbook. Rob
