I like Compaq because I think they are much better quality than all the other laptops. In particular I like the keyboard, mousepad, HDMI out, Lightscribe DVD writer, and good graphics card with HDMI. Hot from me.

Also available through their ebay account (ebuyerexpress) at the same price for those who were recently issued a 10% voucher, which would bring the price to around £330.

Good price indeed.

The HD4200 in this is hardly a 'good' graphics card - it's very basic almost identical in performance to the GMA HD on the new i series intel processors; the Athlon M320 ranks alongside a Celeron Dual-core T3000 for performance.

If your funds can't quite stretch to one of the cheaper i3 deals this probably outguns most the Celeron deals out there. :thumbsup:

Do not buy a HP the power supplies die in about 18 months and you have to buy a new one and they cost £50 or more. my second power supply is in the process of the internal lead snapping. The first lead did the same and I thought it would be simple to rewire it. No way. It is designed to have to be replaced. They have both broken in the same place and searching forums last time it seems to be a known fault. 2 leads in 30 months is a real pain. HP couldn't give a hoot about the problem after a year. The second lead I looked after every time I packed it away and it still did the same thing.

AVOID HP at all costs unless you want a brick after 18 months or so.

Ive had an HP laptop for over 3 years with no PS problems. My Father has a 2 year old HP, again no problems.

I use mine everyday and take it everywhere with me. As I did with my IBM that lasted 5-6 years (and still works as I checked it the other day and a Toshiba that I am typing on now and is 6 years old my wife has used it for the last 30 months)

Maybe I was unlucky, But 2 leads that broke in exactly the same place. As I say last time as I trawled the web to find a replacement lead as it had a strange connector (no generic ones will fit it) I came across a lot of other disgruntled people with the same problem. Once you have a laptop you have to get power to it or be able to charge the battery or your £400 plus machine becomes worthless and you cannot even back stuff up off the machine. You have to buy a new power supply. I think from HP they were £69 and from a local computer shop I got one for between £50 and £60.

But to add £100 plus to the cost of a laptop even if it is installments, makes a bargain look not so much of one. My battery died at 7 months and was replaced by HP (that I took as a it happens to people and it was unlucky, then the hard drive died at 11 months and they replaced that, but all my data was lost so I now back everything up, again I didn't blame HP as it could happen to anyone. But 2 power leads failing in exactly the same way (the wire near the transformer breaking inside its rubberised sheath) That I blame HP for especially after reading all those similar problems last time.

Hopefully none of you who buy it get asimilar problem.

Yes, HP bought Compaq out years ago. They're now one and the same company.

Need to get a laptop fast in this sort of price bracket. My old HP is on the blink (after 5 years of hard service - so happy to buy HP again)

I know nothing about laptop specs. Isd this deal better than, say, this:

Compaq Presario CQ61-440SA Laptop, Athlon M320 2.1GHz, 4GB RAM, 160GB HDD, 15.6" HD BV, DVD-RW, ATI HD4200, Webcam, WLAN, Windows 7 Home Premium - £363.97

Any other deals I should be looking at?

Thanks for any help.
