photo is of a HP computer. Hmmmm

I meant 2 GHz single core + Vista Basic = F A I L

Found a 3 star review on Amazon. But that’s the only one I could find. So far…

Ha someone messed up…

Uh, you do know that Compaq = HP, yes?

I hope the flamingos wipe good, they would look and smell really bad with skid marks on their pink feathers.

not a good deal by a longshot. if you need one for back to school, just wait for officemax or CC to have something with a crazy rebate; you can get a core 2 duo setup for this price easily.

Compaq + Celeron = CRAPOLA #1

Oh no! My comment didn’t get up in time!

COMPAQ is STILL owned by HP! It hasn’t changed!

yes but at same time Compaq has there own logo.

Celeron? Aw come on!

No dual core?

Double Fail!

Yeah, that struck me as odd. They’re the same company, but two separate brands.

maybe not?..HP and Compaq = the same!

Ugh: Vista…
Double Ugh: Celeron…


Compaq orrr HP…which is it???

Compaq is made by HP.

With a celeron chip I wouldn’t touch this for over $500. JMO.

Price is nice, but reliability comes at the cost of the low retail price. This is a refurb, and I would guess that whatever didn’t break for the first owner will break sometime in the next 6 months. Compaq makes disposable computers - check out reviews online to see what I’m talking about… motherboard failures, cheap hard drives, screen issues.
