bought the compaq presario 700 laptop duron 1.0, 256 ram upgradable by 128 more, dvd, 20gb hd, etc. last night, today the battery won't hold a charge. tech support is nice and is sending a new one, even though after i got off the phone with them my old one started to charge, so we'll see. good price but a lil sketchy. i'll keep ya posted

nice, other than the fact its a compaq, ha. My desktop is a compaq.... i stripped it and put in my own parts.. runs 100000x better. Compaq cant build a quality computer. Ive been through 2... they suck as ive found out.

hey, thats not fair. Just cause u put better parts in it doesent mean it sucks. It just means you bought an outdated comp. In my experience, COMPAQs can take one hellz of a beating and still keep going. So show a little respect f00z.

sure compaq might have parts that last but they arent quality products thats for sure... i have an old Packard Bell from 1997 and it still runs fine... but the parts are shit, they was shit when i got it and they still are shit.
