Excellent

A brand new machine at a bargain price.

May be cosmetically marked with rough packaging.

I had an old home built computer. 166 Pentium, I Meg Hard Disk 32Mb memory with just a CD-Rom running Windows 95 in an AT case. My son had an Elonex with a 366 Pentium 11, 6Meg Hard Disk 64Mb memory with a CD-Rom running Windows 98. It all started with the unsucessful attempt to add a CD-RW and...

All in one basic solution

The price..

RRP: £765. This is very much an entry-level home PC aimed at the first-time buyer. The core specification is actually pretty basic, with an AMD K6-2/533 processor in the driving seat, backed by a skimpy 64MB of SDRAM and an 8GB Western Digital hard disk. Graphics are handled by an integrated...

The compaq pressario range seems to be getting a lot of flak, I have to say that in the case of the 7481 range of desktop pcs it is totally undeserved. I changed from a Hewlett-Packard pc to this compaq model in July just passed and I am thoroughly happy (except for a minor glitch with the...

“Compaq Presario 6097EA”

After Sales Product Support

Unwanted Pre-Installed Software

Fast, reliable, good looks, stable ... to mention a few, but enough about me, I`m here to talk about the Compaq Presario 6097EA. Ah, who am I kidding, course I mean the PC. I have had it for about 6 months now and is an upgrade from a Compaq Presario 2292 which I had for about 4 years. Yes...

“Beats the rest hands down”

fast, reliable

none

I started with computers almost 8 years ago and have owned Packard Bell, Hewlitt Packerd, Gateway and now my compaq Presario. I said I would never buy a compaq because I had worked at a major retail store in the computer department and there were always so many returns on them that I figured they...

Quality brand

Hard and anoying to upgrade

I have had my Compaq Pressario 5400 PC for over 2 years now and with the expansion of technology, it quickly became out-dated. That seems to be the only problem with buying a PC these days, having to upgrade it every few years, which turns out to be quite expensive. For a tower PC it was quite...

“The Highly Average PC”

published 22/11/2002

The package deal for a hectic lifestyle

Warranty

In my opinion, the Compaq Presario 7940 Athlon 600MHz 30GB 128MB is a highly average choice. It is Windows 2000 compatible, which is still relatively workable. It's retro appearance is appealing to the eye and they do put together captivating packages to reel their customers in, but are you...

“Compaq Presario PC's”

published 27/01/2001

It is a high quality brand and very fast

The grffics card sometimes finds it hard to cope

When looking for a PC I knew that it had to have a high specification to be able to keep up with the fast moving market. When finding a Compaq with such good specification and not a huge price tag I was highly surprised. Its well known that Compaq are one of the best computer manufacturers in the...

“Size Matters - 2292”

published 22/09/2000

Small and light

Not as much memory as newer models

This model is excellent for its size - very small desktop processor meaning it is also very lightweight! It has 4gig of memory and this is just about satisfactory as long as you don't have millions of new games to take up tonnes of memory. Installation is easy as with all of Compaq's recent...

“Presario Upgrades”

published 24/09/2000

Adequate but quickly out of date

Compaq are not easy to Upgrade

I purchased a Compaq Presario 2254 just over two years ago. It has been an ideal first PC for me but I feel that it is about time I improved it to nearer current specifications. The Compaq is a good machine but it is not very easy to obtain compatible upgrades. It is even harder to understand...

I am the proud owner of a Presario 2200. I purchased it six years ago for a price of PDS600.00. Mine is totally black in colour including the monitor and keyboard and equipped with a Cyrix 166 Processor, 16 MB RAM and 1.2 GB Hard Drive. About a year ago I increased the RAM to 32 MB and the Hard...

“Pros and Cons”

published 11/07/2000

The Compaq series is a cheap and 'reliable' series with a few problems. The problems revolve around using not wholely compatable parts, the use of a cyrix chip instead of an intel means that a few games will not play and that you lose something from the performance of the system. It is important...

good looking, powerful, does the job

hideous fan noise, poor build quality

The Presario 2500 is a good looking piece of kit, even though it’s one of the largest laptops on the market. It has an excellent screen with a 1200 x 768 pixel resolution, which is large enough for everyone except perhaps a graphics designer. It also has a hard disk capacity of 30Gb, which is...

“Other side of the coin”

published 05/07/2000

I bought a presario over a year ago and, unlike our friend who has had problems, my experience has been somewhat different. I cannot comment on the quality of the support offered simply because I did not need it. Is that luck or the more usual experience. This is the second presario I have had...
