Compaq Presario V3000T is very excellent I think and this is the most wanted, famous and successful notebook product in my country. I bought it on September 2008 and I strove to get this due to I must saved my money for months. Its price was so high to me at that time. Hewlett-Packard as developer seems like made this one as their masterpiece notebook product, it offers latest technology such as specification below ( I wrote based on box package) :1.)

Price and Warranty

I bought for IDR 7500.000 ( $715). Well guys, for me it very expensive but it's fine because it comes with many great features and fortunately that I bought it last year due to its price now reaches IDR 9500.000 ($915), How lucky I am ^_^. All components come with 1 year warranty.

Default Applications

I got Northon Internet Security trial for 60 days but after that I didn't continue to use it anymore because I prefer using another Anti Virus. I got Vista trial 30 days as well, but due to vista offers too expensive price and wasting memory resources, I decided to quit and continue to use XP. For Connecting to internet is very easy, beside automatically wireless network, we can use easy internet services which will guide us to register for new internet account and configure computer for using existing account.

What I Like about Compaq Presario V3000T

- Very user-friendly with comprehensive features and easy to be understood

- Very sleek, chic, slim and not too bulky

- Sturdy on its body

- High speed performance due to supported by Intel® Core TM 2 Duo

processor T5750 (2.0 GHz)

- High wireless signal to catch internet connection

What I don't like about Compaq Presario V3000T

- I cannot install latest game here such as Winning Eleven, NFSU, and cool other

games which need higher VGA due to its VGA onboard is too poor .

- Its 6-Cell Lithium-ion battery seems not durable I think because it could only last

for less than 2 hours powered on and each time it charged will reduce 1x for its

life perode.

- Sometimes touchpad not responding

My Overall Opinion

Overall I'm quite satisfied using this product, it really help me doing my daily works, and of course looking for such extra money from internet because i like make money from internet, very responsive and automatically to catch internet connection whenever i'm on the hotspot public area. With its chic design and portable, it doesn't make me inconvenient whenever I bring it.

But my suggestion and hope is that compaq will upgrade on their VGA onboard like another notebook product so as to consumer who loves game so much like me can play latest game, it will more valuable due to sometimes i'm bored with my daily activities and i need having fun for a while.
