I just got this computer and I absolutly love it. Actually, me and my husband share it and we also have a desktop. We are always fighting for it because it is so easy and so much fun to use. It has a lot of memory- 160GB, so we have plenty of room to store our files. We mostly just use the computer for the internet and also for my husband's company. It is fast enough for us and I love how fast it boots up. It boots up within seconds. I love it.
The only real drawback is that we have noticed that it the battery only lasts a few hours and then you have to charge it. Other than that, it works very well. The screen is 15.6 inches and when you watch videos they look crystal clear. We watch Youtube a lot so this is important for us. The videos are always clear and they load very quickly.
If you are looking for a good, reliable laptop computer then I suggest you get this one. Compaq computers have a great reputation and this model does not let them down.
