Are you looking for portability combined with affordability? If you answered yes to that question, then you should grab a Compaq Presario CQ60-410US. It doesn’t matter if you want to watch DVDs, online and HDTV content, play games, etc. the 15.6 inch diagonal widescreen display…the glossy Imprint finish surely provides durability and style that you won’t find in other laptops.
The Compaq Presario CQ60-410US once again defines simplicity and beauty with the thin lines combined with an iconic touchpad design as well as sleek touch control panel. If you think that the traditional painted surfaces of laptops, then you would be pleased to know that the Glossy Black Imprint Finish that encases the form of this laptop is more durable than the usual casing of today’s notebooks. I’ve been looking for an inexpensive notebook for my nephew and I think the Compaq Presario CQ60-410US is a great choice. If you are looking for a low cost notebook that’s good enough for web browsing that you can easily use, the Compaq Presario CQ60-410US is yours for the taking.
I’m sure you’re dying to know the specs and features of this laptop, let’s take a look:
The CPU – The Compaq Presario CQ60-410US comes with a 2.2 GHz Intel Celeron 900. This is based off the same basic core just like the Core 2 Duo…BUT it comes only with one core and other features found in the Core 2 Duo are not found in the Intel Celeron single core processor. One example is SpeedStep – this is a power saving feature that slows down the clock speed when you unplug. If you’re multi tasking, say like browsing the web while running the virus scan in the background, your experience would be better with the Core 2 Duo. However, if you’re doing just one thing, say like playing online games, then having the higher clock speed of 2.2 GHz Celeron 900 will definitely help.
The Display – The 15.6 inch widescreen display of the Compaq Presario CQ60-410US comes with the same resolution as more expensive notebooks out there – it has 1366×768 pixels. Although it’s not as bright as other more expensive notebooks, it really isn’t a big deal. I believe the Compaq Presario CQ60-410US has a good display for the price.
The RAM – The Compaq Presario CQ60-410US comes with 2 GB. I think this is more than enough for light home use. You can game with it and it will be fine, BUT for heavy gaming, I doubt that 2 GB would cut it. It all depends on the title and the demands of the game you play.
The Hard Disk Drive (HDD) – With laptops having well over 320 GB, the hard disk drive of 160 GB of Compaq Presario CQ60-410US seems small. However, believe it or not, most home users, which is the target market of this laptop, uses less than 50 GB. If you’re not a heavy gamer, if you don’t do video editing, then you won’t have huge problems with the slightly smaller disk space of Compaq Presario CQ60-410US. The Compaq Presario CQ60-420US improves by including a 250 GB harddrive and 3 GB of RAM, while still featuring the sleek form factor of the CQ60-410US.
