“Not as bad as others may say it is.”

Written on: 04/04/2014 by McCollum116 (1 review written)

Okay yes, this is not a lapt5op you can use any more. But I found one lying in my company office the other day, and I have made a good use of it now. After using Windows 8.1 or Mac OSX this laptop is nothing and best to throw away. But ever considered Ubuntu? Yes I was able to convert this laptop into my personal home server. Ubuntu Server works fast, and this laptop can handle the load too. I have my movies and a lot of other things added to it… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/09/2008

Overall compared to the new 2008 computer line of laptops this computer ranks at the bottom with all the rest of the 2003 models. If you are looking to find a good computer to start off with maybe for college or just to get used to having an inexpensive addition to your office or home this would for sure be a great buy! 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

Written on: 30/12/2009

this computer (laptop) is really good...we bought this in 2004 and now it is almost 2010 and i still use it like it's new.and right now i am tiping this comment from this laptot (presario 2500).but yeah what i dont like about this laptop is the battery that doesn't last long and that it only has 27 GB hard disk.i use this computer almost every day.i don't use my normal computer because a lot of other people go on it aswell.so i use this laptop as much as others use there normal computer.but the best part is ,that it is a 5-6 year old computer and it still works.but for some reasons this last year i can't instal antiviruses because they cause problems.but thats now this last year, but before i could instal antiviruses (when it was newer)i am on this laptop almost all day and everyday and still i have no problems

Written on: 05/05/2007 by photoman (62 reviews written)

Compaq Presario 2500 is not top of the line, but it is an advanced mid-range portable computer for its time.
It comes in various configurations with Celeron and Pentium 4 processors up to 3.06 GHz, CDROM/DVD/DVD+CDRW Combo drives, 14" and 15" monitors and up to 1G RAM.

Misterwilson's Response to photoman's Review

Written on: 19/07/2007

I would agree with all of the above - mine has given me a few years of reliable service with no problems. My only little niggles would be that (in my personal opinion) the built-in speakers are not all that good, and also as the previous reviewer mentioned it does produce quite a bit of heat, therefore the fan is on for a lot of the time and is not exactly quiet!
<br/>
<br/>I have lugged mine around the country for the last 2 or 3 years and even dropped it a couple of times, but it is still providing sterling service. I rate Compaq as a brand-name quite highly and this is a very good laptop.
