I have just bought myself a brand new Compaq Presario laptop which costed about RM3500. Not extremely expensive, but should be expensive if we were to compare with a similar Dell unit. No many branded computers can beat Dell in terms of pricing I guess.

Compaq Presario

The laptop is completely black in color. The glossy black finishing makes it look very classy and elegant.

Now, let’s check out the specs and see if you like it or not.

  • The processor is Intel Core 2 Duo 1.67MHz.
  • 120GB 5200RPM Harddisk
  • 512MBx2 DDR2 RAM (1GB)
  • Intel Pro Wireless 802.11a/b/g
  • DVD +/- RW Double Layer Drive
  • Integrated Bluetooth
  • 5-in-1 digital media reader
  • 14.1″ TFT WXGA high definition widescreen LCD panel with brightview technology
  • 2 built-in Altec Lansing stereo speakers
  • Built-in 56K modem

Digital media reader

That’s the digital media reader, which is located at the left side of the laptop. In fact all the slots which include 3 USBs, digital media reader slot, expansion port, ear phone jack and etc are all located at the left or right of the laptop for easier access.

Altec Lansing

The Altec Lansing stereo speakers are good for loud music lovers. Great also if you like watching DVD movies on the widescreen LDC screen.

I nearly forgot to tell you that this unit comes preloaded with FreeDOS. Who use DOS nowadays?… so, I choose to load it with Windows Vista Business (costs about RM500). Don’t confuse the price here, the price above includes the Windows Vista Business cost. However, if you are a command prompt geek, you can grab this laptop at less than RM3k.
