Good Laptop for basic use

AdvantagesGood basic laptop for internet use, youtube, and word processing

Disadvantagesquite heavy and not as easy to carry around.

It's easy to set up - just turn it on and follow the on screen instructions. It does take about half an hour though before its set up and ready to use. I have found the laptop to be fairly fast, its great for internet browsing and youtube, I have also loaded a couple of games onto it and they run nicely, ..." Read review

Perfect for travelling, excellent graphics, generally no problems

AdvantagesGenerally durable, seems to keep its speed, excellent graphics

DisadvantagesLack of Bluetooth, HDMI Port does not work, Hinges on screen require care

"First of all, I purchased this as a laptop specifically with a separate graphics card so I could use some graphics heavy applications during a training course. The aim was for it to be portable between my classes my house and to be able to store all of my software and notes. So far I have had it 3 years and there are very few things I can fault it on. Even after clogging it up with software it is still very fast to boot, the wifi connects very quickly ..." Read review

Compaq presario cq 50

Advantageslaptop, can play games on it

DisadvantagesWindows vista, slow

"...approx., 5.83 lbs I have a Compaq Presario cq50 and I like and dislike it. The reasons i like it is because it is a laptop, connects to internet, can play games on it. And some reasons i dislike it is because for one it overheats just like any other computer, and it becomes slow after a year or so of use, it has windows vista but you can upgrade it if you wanted to, you might have a problem connecting to wireless internet. ..."
