I have for sale this Compaq Presario 2100 laptop. The Presario 2100 series is a well-crafted reliable notebook. It has a 14.1" inch XGA screen which is very good (1024x768). Colours are nice and bright. There is no dead pixels, scratches any blemishes, pressure marks etc.
The laptop comes with an Athlon 2500 Mobile processor and fast 40GB hard drive. It also has a Radeon mobile graphics card which is heaps better than the usual Intel chipset you get in many laptops.
There is 1GB Ram memory installed.
There is a wireless card built in which gives you wireless internet straight from the box. Its always had really good reception and signal strength.
Battery holds very good charge and its about 2 hours. I've just finished a 5 hours battery recalibrating process and laptop software confirmed that the battery is in good condition.
There is also 2 USB ports, VGA out, Modem RJ-11, Ethernet RJ-45, audio line-out (for speakers headphones), external microphone port, PCMCIA slot, S-Video out, and parallel port. I'll also include a laptop bag.
Right side of the touchpad is sectioned off by a vertical line, indicating the part of the software-enhanced pad that you should use for scrolling and thats my favourite thing about that laptop. Its like a using a normal PC mouse with a scroll. The wide keyboard features a familiar, desktop like layout, with Insert, Delete, Page Down and Up, Home, and End keys huddled in the upper-right corner. They are very helpfull as well. There are also two buttons on the side for volume up and down and mute to control audio playback.
There is a CD-RW/DVD drive, for CD burning and DVD playback. Software is included so You can watch all Your films and listen to Your favourite music.
Laptop will come with a Power Supply, all th CDs with programs, drivers and manuals.
A fresh copy of Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (COA License sticker at the bottom) with all the latest drivers, firmware and all the Microsoft Updates as well is already installed. Also all the windows services and registry are configured to make it even faster. I've built the system with lots of extra software which I think are the best "on the market". That includes :
*Mozilla Firefox 3.0.5 Web Browser, fully configured with some plugins installed like FlashBlock, Google Toolbar, Download Manager, Coloured Tabs and other.
*Open Office software. (Great alternative to Word, Excell, etc.)
*CCleaner - system optimization and privacy tool.
*Ashampoo Burning Studio - for CD/DVD burning.
*AllPlayer 3.5, Sub-Edit Player, SMPlayer, VLC Player - video players with all the codecs already installed.
*QCD Quintesential Player - audio player.
*Skype, for landlines talking for free and very cheap mobile phones calls all over the world.
*SpyBot Search and Destroy - brilliant anty spyware software.
*SongBird - Itunes alternative. Crapware free.
*Poddox - to manage your Ipod.
*Other programs like notepad v2, editplus, winrar, 7zip, messenger etc
You can always ask if you will need any other programs.
The condition of the laptop is very good, there is some small scratches and scuffs from daily use here and there but nothing to worry about. The fans are very quiet, most of the time you will not even hear them. I have tested all the components including memory(with MemTest), processor(with Prime95), Hard Drive(with HDD Tune), VGA and everything works great. Its a great laptop and You will not be disappointed.
