This Compaq series is good. Dont understand the cold votes.
#3
Amazon are selling it for £349.00 and the cheapest next to that is £340.00. So i think this is a decent price.

Think if I was running Windows 7 i'd be needing at least 4GB RAM if I wanted to do anything with it other than boot up the system especially if I was running the 64bit version, but thats just my opinion.

You are misinformed. I know people running Vista on this machine with 2gb ram. Win 7 definately doesnt need more than 2gb and runs fast for Office and Online work. It all depends what you need it for.

Oh right, I'll quit my job at microsoft then as I obviously don't know what i'm on about, minimum system requirements are just that, if you actually plan to use any applications and don't want your system to slow to a crawl, it's best not to try to scrape by with the minimum

You work for MS do you, yeah right!

If you did you'd be familiar with this minimum system requirements screen which states for 64 bit Win 7, the min required is 2 (TWO) gb of RAM!

This is a cheap budget machine and therefore the most application use it will get will be a bit of Word and internet browsing, for that 2gb is MORE than enough

Dannyjak - you are as someone else said, misinformed. Win 7 does not need 4gb to run comfortably at all. We have many Win 7 business machines with 2gb, and some with 4gb. To be honest, we usually just take whats available at the right price, as it makes pretty much sod all difference for day to day office use.

For Win 7 32bit, 4gb is pointless as it can only access around 3gb+, if I remember correctly. I am no expert, so please someone with knowledge fill in the details.

Think if I was running Windows 7 i'd be needing at least 4GB RAM if I wanted to do anything with it other than boot up the system

I bought this laptop instore for my Dad (advertised at £327 but scanned through the till at £295).

As for it "needing 4GB RAM to do anything other than boot up" - that's one of the most ill-informed and just plain stupid remarks I've ever read in this site.
My Dad just wants to surf the internet and write the odd letter, etc... - this PC boots up very quickly and does exactly what my Dad wants it to do. For under £300 it's perfect for those looking for a budget machine that capably does the basics.

It always makes me laugh when these budget laptop deals are posted, and you then get idiotic remarks about how "it's not powerful" enough to do anything, etc.... I mean, honestly - would Compaq really go to the trouble of assembling and selling a machine that isn't capable of more than just "booting up"??!! get real.

Dannyjak - if you really do work for Microsoft, I'd seriously question their employment practices. I know it was "just your opinion", but if that's how accurate your opinion is, they should sack you immediately as you obviously don't have a clue what you're on about. And you're actually doing Microsoft a disservice by suggesting you need ridiculous amounts of RAM to run Windows 7 - I doubt they'd be too happy knowing their employees are spouting so much nonsense. Then again, I doubt you work for them - unless you're a sub-contracted plant cleaner or something.

Why do you hate your father so much?
The guy who employs me is called Gordon Frazer if you wish to question him on his judgement his email address freely avaliable on the web!! 4GB is not a ridiculous amount of RAM in my opinion it just makes the whole experience alot more comfortable. I'm not a sub-contracted plant cleaner but saw no shame in taking cleaning jobs whilst working my way through my degree, and don't look down on people who do this job in the way in which you seem to do.

what makes you think I look down on cleaners? is it because I suggested someone like you could be one?? all I was suggesting is that the only way someone with your knowledge of computing could only ever work for Microsoft in a non-technical fashion. Perhaps you're not a cleaner after all, and you're employed by them to maintain the car park or something?

you can try and change your opinions from "i'd be needing at least 4GB RAM if I wanted to do anything with it other than boot up the system" to now saying "4GB RAM just makes the whole experience alot more comfortable" if it makes you feel better. On the second statement I'd agree with you if you intend to use your machine for anything intensive, but for anyone buying a budget machine for surfing the web, etc... having 2GB or 4GB makes very little difference. Just accept that you're wrong on your first claim and who knows? you might be able to move on to a better job at MS
#21
my comment was i'd be wanting at least 4gb of RAM that means me personally for my uses to run the 64bit version of windows 7 of which I use several of the applications but as you seem to know my life better than me and my computing needs then i'll happily bow to your superior knowledge of computers and try 2gb on my carpark and see if the ticket machines, entrance and exit barriers all work at the same time.

LOL. Your spelling and grammar is terrible - not what I'd expect from a so-called "Microsoft employee" - at least learn to use a spell check!
Your story is so shabby, it's laughable! A microsoft employee who reports directly to the managing director, looking at a sub £300 laptop on a bargains website, then claiming that the products his own company makes are useless without 4GB of RAM. Just give it up before you make yourself look even more daft!
