Compaq Presario 1400T Pentium III notebook computer.

  • Ease of Use:
  • Quality of Tech Support:

Pros:Decent performance for a PIII, styling, sound quality, not too big or too heavy

Cons:None really, it does what it's supposed to do.

I have had this laptop for several years now, and it has always served me well.

Its specs include a Pentium III 800 MHz processor, built-in Ethernet and dial-up modem, integrated graphics, DVD-ROM/CD-RW "combo" drive, and more.

I have upgraded the memory to 320 MB and the hard disk to 60 GB and added a wireless card. And of course I have ditched Windows ME and purchased XP Home for it.

When new, the main selling points for this model were its styling and sound quality. Even now, more than 6 years later, it still turns heads. It has a unique high-gloss finish on the interior parts and sides, and a matte silver finish on the back of the screen and bottom. A black plastic "surround" over the speakers and sides completes the look. And of course the sound quality is amazing, with the built-in JBL Pro speakers. Much better than what you'd get on a new laptop today.

This laptop provides decent performance for general tasks like internet browsing, email, word processing, etc, but it's not made for gaming or anything like that. Battery life is acceptable, but not spectacular.
