Compaq Armada 1750 ... Compaq Armada 1750 is for you. The 1750 is part of Compaq's Value line of Armada notebooks, and value is definitely what you get: the latest Intel mobile processor technology, superior upgradeability, and full communications and multimedia features.
This Armada uses one of the new line of mobile Pentium II processors. The difference between the new mobile Pentium II and the older version is that, whereas the mobile Pentium II used to have 512K of L2 cache memory running at one-half processor clock speed, it now has half the cache (256K) running at full clock speed. Faster cache is better than more cache, and using this design strategy the new mobile Pentium II promises to outperform any notebook processor on the market today. It continues to support MMX-enhanced multimedia software, and has unmatched all-around strength in business and gaming applications. Notebook's huge hard drive offers plenty of storage space for most uses, and for additional storage capacity, you can add a second hard drive to the Armada's Multi-Bay. Dinky graphics in your notebook are a thing of the past. The Armada 1750 features a nice big color screen, and an AGP graphics controller. Compaq PremierSound 16-bit audio produces SoundBlaster compatible output through the notebook's acoustic bass reflex stereo speakers with a 2 watt/channel amplifier and 4 stage EQ. An optional internal CD-ROM drive, integrated mic, and standard audio jacks round out the multimedia features of the Armada 1750. The Armada's Multi-Bay makes this a very versatile notebook. The Multi-Bay accommodates the standard floppy drive, as well as an optional second hard drive, battery, DVD-ROM drive, LS-120 drive, or Zip drive. Accessorize your Armada with any of these extra devices that you may need for the task at hand. While you're on the road, stay in touch with the optional integrated 56K V.90 fax/modem, allowing you to send and receive email and faxes, or go online for research or entertainment. Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 95/98 comes installed on this Armada, along with Insight Management Agents, Intelligent Manageability, Security 32, Diagnostics for Windows 95, Compaq Power Management, Online Safety and Comfort Guide, Reference Guide, and Carbon Copy.

the bedroom or on the sofa, I reach for the laptop. It's probably a good thing I don't actually own this Compaq , as I may well have thrown it out the window by now. This is *not* the computer's fault, it generally behaves very well and although it's really to hefty to carry for long, I have found it very useful. No, the blame is fairly and squarely at the feet of the *moron* who thought that a hair's breadth was just the perfect depth to put the modem cable into. The cable's plug is very fragile looking (indeed, this one has a 'prong' snapped off...not surprising when you consider they look like flimsy plastic fairy ...

I had an upgrade in work to the C Compaq Armada E500 and I was really looking forward to its arrival as the Compaq has quite a good name. The first thing that struck me was how slim the notebook is at only 1.6 inches thick. The only thing then is that you think its light but at 5.7 pounds you know you have it in your hands. With a 15 inch screen I thought it would be a strain on the eyes but no its quite adequate and the resolution is great given by a AGP 2X graphics with 8 Mb Sdram. When fully charged the battery life is three and a half hours, which is, more than long enough for meetings etc. Although the notebook has 128mb of ram I find it very slow in booting ...

specifications for the c Compaq Armada E500 are pretty standard, with a 600MHz Pentium III speedstep processor, a usual 128Mb of memory and a 12Gb hard disk, plus a 4x DVD-ROM drive which actually a bit slow nowadays. The performance could be better in comparison with other Pentium III 650 based computers. The price for this ...
