Good: Lasted 4 years I guess.
Bad: Mainly.. The battery life, speed and physical laptop structure.
Comment: For the first couple of months the Compaq Presario worked perfectly but after 5 months or so it started slowing down so I transferred everything onto an external hard drive and formatted the whole laptop. After format the speed and everything about this laptop has gone down hill! I know that I could buy an extra RAM stick and stick it in the motherboard but with all the screws and keys falling off I don't really see the point of wasting any money on accessories for this laptop. Mind you I've had the Compaq for over 4 years but even from the moment I received the laptop I knew straight away something was deeply wrong with it. What's inconvenient is the constant updates on windows, hp, and vista software; it annoys me! It has its moments where one second it works sufficiently and the next I feel like ripping my hair out. Surely HP and Compaq is of low quality but anyway that's my review and from now on I do not prefer hp as a future recommended laptop.
Comment: For the money I paid, you would pay twice that much for a Vaio and the difference would be negligable...
It's an amazing laptop, I'm completely happy.
Good: It's, like, the best ever
Bad: There is nothing I can say that is bad
Comment: Buy this laptop as it's the best, well that's what I think
