COMPAQ Laptop Presario CQ62-238DX AMD Athlon II Dual-Core P320 (2.10GHz) 3GB Memory 250GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4250 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
COMPAQ Laptop Presario CQ62-238DX AMD Athlon II Dual-Core P320 (2.10GHz) 3GB Memory 250GB HDD ATI Radeon HD 4250 15.6" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros: Nice little laptop, keyboard is a definite positive for me. Screen looks sharp and bright, runs linux with no driver issues.

Cons: I guess for a con I will list no operating system cd, but who really cares for the price. Not a huge fan of the trackpad as others have stated.

Pros: Comfortable keyboard layout with a solid processor and quality display. Very functional for every day office use. Running Windows 7 with a 6 hour battery life span.

Cons: The screen has a reflective mirror quality to it which causes some glare when in direct sunlight. Also the AC adapter plugin location is about midway down on the side which is a bit awkward.

Pros: Great chip that runs at 3.1Ghz w/stock voltage and cooling. Well worth the $$ for an upgrade over my A64 3200

Cons: The AMD sticker is too small =p

BIOSTAR TA770 A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Very nice board for the price. Upgradeable for the future when you need to switch to am2+. After having a 939 board I learned my lesson on that.

Cons: Only little thing that bothers me about this board is the audio jacks seem to be a little tight for anything I plug in (headphones, speakers, etc)
