Lowest price laptop sale I've seen
« on: May 02, 2005, 03:37:46 PM »
CompUSA is selling the HP Compaq Presario M2010us for $499 -- sale ends 5/7.

What have been people's experiences with Compaq -- positive or negative?

I had the presario 2100 (I think?)...durable, quick, but heavy!

I have a compaq desktop, it sucks! Right now it's running on safe mode b/c it will not work on regular.

I also had problems here at the office with a compaq desktop.  Very "iffy".

I stopped buying compaqs as of 2 years ago.  We had ordered 6 (I work in IT).  4 died within 6 months and 2 have serious overheating problems.  Maybe the newer ones are better.

Honestly, I order and deploy at least 50 laptops per year.  I have yet to see any one brand not have any problems.  Best of the bunch to me are Thinkpads.  Whatever you get, back up your data!

You can't pick up girls without a G5. A much sexier machine.
