Its funny how the world of computers has changed since the introdution of the very first laptop. In those days they werebulky, had limited computing power and were also very expensive but nonetheless people loved them because they were portable.Nowadays most computer users including me have replaced there laptop with smaller, more powerful and convenient devices, such as tablets and smartphones.
This transition has created a market that is full of ridiculously affordable laptops, such Compaqs CQ58 series. Within this series is the CQ58-305SA. This laptop doesn't feature the greatest hardware and isn't the fastest but who needs that? thats what your desktop computer is for. It also doesn't break your wallet, I picked up this laptop for about £179.99 on amazon.
The laptop has a black shiny design to it and has a plastic casing making it weigh only 2.3KG
with a keyboard that isn't too loud even for the fastest of typers and I type 80 WPM. It has a 15.6" display provides 1366x768 resolution and gives a very vivid and clear image. The downside is that to enjoy this image you will have to be in its direct viewing angle, otherwise you will lose visibility, not a problem if your simply browsing web pages, or
doing simple tasks on it. The speakers are good enough, but if you like your audio or music loud, I would definltely recommend headphones because at loud volumes the speakers will rattle and distort.
Powering this machine is a Intel Pentium Dual Core 2020M processor with 4GB of ram. It also features a DVD burner and a moderate 500 gb hard drive. But its greatest feature was its battery, the battery can go up to 4 hours until needing to recharge.
This laptop can basically do anything except play games and video edit, but thats what your xbox and pc are for. And for a price of £179.99 I have room to buy other things that this product lacks, such as a new Iphone or Ipad. So I would definitely recommend this product to new buyers that want affordability and portability.
