  • A. This laptop has been GREAT so far, I purchased it about a week ago and it's still okay. lol. Honestly it has a great appearance, but a little oddly shaped. The keyboard reminds me of a macbook, the picture quality is by far the best I have seen on a PC. The negatives are it picks up fingerprints so fast and it isn’t so much disk space but I just use it for my college work so it works for me. I recommend those who are going to use this as a fulltime laptop get a memory stick and save files on there so it will reduce its memory usage. Other than that this computer was a great purchase so far and at an affordable price :)

  • A. Yes, depending on what applications they are using. If they are using basic Office apps then it should be good enough. If they are using heavier apps that need more processing power (like Adobe) than they might need a laptop with a stronger processor. I am a writer who uses mainly Office apps and the internet and I love it.

Lets be honest..if you are looking for a gamer, web designer, music production studio or the like, this is NOT the pc for you..BUT, if you are looking to surf the web, download and store music, stream movies, work on spreadsheets or word processing, this baby will fit the bill perfectly. The AMD is a great little processor and upgrading the RAM will speed it up just fine. You cannot beat the price or the shipping and Wally World backs up their purchases, So I am a Happy Camper.. I own 2 Compaqs, both from walmart.com and I have no complaints..

I bought this for a Computer Lab in my music studio for children as young as 4 through adults to use. Students use two music theory programs and a music writing program after their lessons. The price was the best around. All my students are able to use it with ease. I am very satisfied with it.

Im just starting high school so i thought it would be a good idea to geta laptop for homework and projects. But i need one within a small budget. My goal was to stay under 350 and this laptop fit that price range perfectly. If your looking for the most bang for youor buck this is the laptop for you. Pros: great keyboard, mouse pad in the center of laptop, long battery life, lightweight, volume controls on keyboard. webcam is very useful Cons: isnt the fastest laptop (doesnt matter to me but its the fastest your going to get for a 300 dollar laptop, shows fingerprints easily. (not a huge problem, because they easily come of with a cloth, webcam color is a little off. Other than those few cons this laptop ishighly recommended for anyone. it works great.

I bought this laptop because I love to write and needed an extra computer besides my home one that I could dedicate to my own projects. When I looked at the display in the store for some reason I thought that maybe I would be taking it back in a few days due to low performance but I was pleasantly surprised. The display quality is great, the speed is just fine and the keyboard has a nice quiet touch to it. Even though the processor is an AMD 1.0, all of my applications that I have downloaded did not have any lag time. I wasn't looking to run anything heavy like Adobe CS5, so as long as it it could handle Office 2010, I was happy. The chassis doesn't heat up even when I leave it for 6 hours + which I appreciate also. The design of it allows bigger hands (like mine) to rest comfortably while typing without falling of the keyboard. The only drawback is that it does not have a number pad but if you don't mind that, it's no problem. Besides, if you need one, they sell USB ones pretty cheap. I've had it for about a week now and I am very pleased. Great for students, surfers or any light users !

Some time in about June 18th I decided to gift myself a laptop since I had a router set up for the Roku's and it would be nice to sit out in the yard and surf the net. I had aimed at $299 Acer from Circuit City but discovered that included waiting 8 to 10 weeks to recover a $100 rebate from 2 different companies. And even then it would not be a straightforward rebate check but an Amex debit card to spend in certain places. They tell you this AFTER charging your credit card $399! The good news is backing out of the deal was painless. Later, while sulking around WallyWorld's Indian Trail store's electronics dept. I came upon the Compaq CQ 57 for $299! This unit has the same features as the afore mentioned Acer: 2 gigs of RAM, 250 gbs hard drive,AMD Dual Core C50 processor, DVD burner, card reader, etc. with Windows 7 home premium. My best & most successful desk top has been a 7 year old Compaq Pressario with an AMD heart. But alas, while all the area WM's had a display model there were none to sell. I finally found a store in Indian Land, SC that had some. I told you this because getting this from Walmart.com delivered to your door for .97 is a terriffic and painless deal. The computer works as expected, found my LAN quickly and effortlessly and Windows 7 is smooth and sure. I have had only XP up to now. You can boost RAM up to 8 gbs . On the downside there is no seperate number pad so you have to use the ones across the top. You weren't planning on running your accounting practise on a $300 laptop were you?
