In addition, you can laser etch your own disc labels from right inside your DVD drive. No ink, no messy markers or clumpy adhesive labels, with LightScribe you simply burn your data, flip the disc over and burn a precise, silkscreen-like text, photo or graphic label directly onto your LightScribe CD or DVD.

Great software for a great machine
The CQ61 range is pre-packed with the latest applications, tools and operating systems to ensure that you get the ultimate computing experience. It comes with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) as standard, the perfect choice for going beyond mere email and web surfing to improve personal productivity and get the best in all kinds of digital entertainment.

The latest Microsoft operating system, Windows 7 comes with several performance improvements that are designed to sleep and resume quicker, be less memory hungry and spot USB devices much faster. Windows 7 simplifies everyday tasks such as introducing improved taskbar previews, bigger icons and creative ways to personalise on the desktop. It provides easy and quick access to your favourite pictures, songs, websites and documents through new jump lists. Finally search has been improved to make searching your PC as easy as searching on the web.

Well that’s just for starters, take a look at this line-up of pre-loaded software:

HP Setup, HP Advisor, HP Support Assistant, Cyberlink DVD Suite, Cyberlink Power DVD, Cyberlink YouCam, Cyberlink MediaShow, Windows Media Center, Windows Live Applications, Norton Online Backup (30-day trial), Symantec Norton Internet Security 2009 (60 days live update).

Finally, for your peace of mind
You’ll want the best in technical support, so it comes with a one-year, pick-up and return, parts and labour warranty. And naturally, this can be extended to protect against accidental damage for up to 3 years, for a small extra premium.

    I've never owned a Compaq product before, so I was a bit apprehensive about how reliable it was going to be. However, when I received the product, this was nothing to be worried about, as it behaved well and was as quick as a blink at everything! It has the latest Windows 7 (which is awesome as you can have gadgets, design your own wallpaper and customize everything),it is great to carry around and has a super battery life and looks great, because it has a piano black finish and some nice silver edges.
    I would recommend this notebook/laptop to anyone in need of somewhere to word process, surf the web and have fun in style. It has an integrated web cam, great if you have an account on Skype, Windows Live or Facebook. The internet is super speedy and I had no trouble at all setting it up with my wireless connection, because the laptop/notebook pretty much does everything for you. This is a great piece of technology.

    Like the previous reviewer, I have not had a compaq before but needed a new laptop and this one was in the right price bracket for my wallet. It comes pre-loaded with Windows 7 and, I have to say, I have had no problems with connecting my peripherals to it - it automatically finds the software necessary to run it and downloads.
    The laptop itself is lightweight and the battery life is good - although when it starts to get low, it does use the last few percent of battery life very quickly.
    I had no problems connecting to my internet modem and have not had any issues with connection at all.
    The in-built webcam is great for SKYPE chats and facebook photos.
    It has a 5 in 1 card reader and HDMI output which is great when I want/need to connect it to my HD-TV to view photos etc, although the screen is brilliantly clear by itself.
    I really like the fact that it has a numeric keypad as this is a feature that I found to be lacking in my previous laptops.
    3 USB sockets make life really easy when connecting printer, memory stick and scanner
    The smooth touch-pad (mouse) took a bit of getting used to, but now I love it and mouse movements are really smooth.

    For its price, I would really recommend this product as its failings are far outweighed by its good points.

    I have just bought this compaq computer previously being a dell user. THis is a great little laptop - very quick, great keyboard and super easy to use. I can't rave about it more - windows 7 is so much better than XP and is easy to use. Defintely great value for money and a worthy buy.

    Great performance, very fast, wireless connectivity is excellent, and it was stunningly easy to get it set up. This last point may sound trivial, but having set up half a dozen other laptops for family members in the last year or so - Dell, Toshiba, Macbook, and a couple of Acers - this was by far the easiest. It comes with minimal (but sufficient) instructions for everything you actually need, and there is none of the usual bloated pre-install of packages and games that seem to be the norm with other manufacturers.

    It won't win any beauty prizes but the only thing I'm really not wild about is the giant letter on the top, and I can't knock off a star just for that.

    Compaq is now a sub division on HP so as you can imagine, this is a serious piece of kit. The Compaq CQ61-401SA has a Intel T4400 processor. Although this is the lower end of the Intel processor range, it is very capable of the standard users needs. What also came to my attention within 30 minutes of turning it on was how quiet and lag free the processor was.

    This is also partly down to the 4GB RAM installed on this machine. Even running more demanding applications like photo editors or video editing software, this machine is a dream to use. Windows 7 home premium that is pre installed on this machine is the 64bit version, which utilises the 4GB RAM properly, rather than a 32bit operating system showing only 3.5GB. The 320GB hard drive speaks for itself. Thats enough storage for 100,000 photos!

    Another key feature that makes this Notebook stand out is the wireless radio used to connect to a wireless network. Most notebooks around this price range would support 802.11b and 802.11G, but this machine also supports 802.11N which, if used with the right router, extends coverage and improves speeds. For those of you into your networking, beware that 802.11N on this laptop will only work on the 2.4Ghz frequency and NOT on 5Ghz.

    The graphics card used in this machine is a basic Intel GMA 4500M, fine for the odd game or DVD.

    Other key features to note on this machine is the 15.6" HP Brightview display, (which is actually brighter than normal) and also that it is HD ready to a 720P standard. The speaker system also comes from Altec Lansing, who are well known for their audio capabilities. There is also an integrated webcam which has a 1.3MP resolution. Integrated is a memory card reader that will read SD, XD and Memory Stick Pro formats,3 USB ports, HDMI and VGA ports.

    All in all an excellent all rounder. Definatley recommended to everyone!

    Verified Purchase
    For the money this laptop has provided everything I needed in a laptop for my mother in her 60's. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't want an all dancing laptop but has relevant needs and use of applications. Great value for money.
