DisadvantagesSome flimsy keys

"...I get this Laptop, the Compaq Presario CQ62 and a mobile broadband USB dongle with 15GBs of download limit to boot. As well as that the dongle has a sim-card within so I get 175 free any network texts too. The contract with everything included costs £30 a month with extra charges if you go over your limits. It’s a 2 year contract, so if you are going down the route of a mobile internet contract, make sure you can justify spending that much money on ..." Read review

Compaq Presario CQ62 Laptop Simple Review

Advantagessee review

Disadvantagessee review

"'''INTRO''' When it comes to laptops the main thing I look for is speed, space and the graphics. I do a lot of filming and photography as a hobby so I like to have plenty space available and I like to be able to view my pictures on a good quality screen. The speed is important to me because I use filming softwares and photo shop at the same time, so I like to be able to run both of those programmes at once without it freezing up. I bought a laptop ..." Read review

The Compaq presario cq62 is a good laptop. Review with images

AdvantagesIt comes with 2GB of Ram and a 250GB hard drive Also has a decent prosessor speed.

DisadvantagesHeats up to fast and its a bit bulky

"The Compaq Presario CQ62 is a good laptop for around home use. In my opinion this Laptop is a bit bulky and heavy for easy portability and it tends to heat up from extended use without a cooling pad. Overall the Compaq Presario CQ62 is a great laptop for checking email or surfing the web, but I would buy a cooling mat for it to ease up the heat. Thats about the only issue i have with this product. This computer has a pretty good processor speed of ..." Read review

Presario to the rescue!

AdvantagesGreat HD scree, good memory space, good RAM, new i3 processor is fast, windows 7 is good

Disadvantagesplastics could be better, gets warm sooner than other laptops

"... What i have noticed in compaq and hp laptops is that the cooling system is half at bottom and half at the side, so if you put it in the lap, it can get warm. However in Dell, the cooling system(1 vent) is behind the laptop(rear down side) which makes it easier to cool and is better. The sound on the laptop is very good, better than other laptops in the similar range. Also, the graphics are really good. The screen is HD and very very crystal clear. ..." Read review
