I purchased my Compaq Presario 2500 laptop from a relative in 2010 and it's still running. I've dropped it, punched it in frustration when losing at games and installed and uninstalled countless software. It's still running. Admittedly, it walks rather than runs even with very simple tasks. I've installed a free and very efficient and light system called "Puppy Linux" that gets the best out of old systems like this.

Used computers of this model can be found still on websites online and or at auctions. If wanting to purchase please do not spend more than a few hundred dollars… Read Full Review
