|Compaq was born in 1982 when three senior managers of Texas Instruments put their heads and money together to form the company whose name is derived from the words "Compatibility" and "Quality".|
By living up to their name, Compaq quickly rose to be the leading supplier of computing systems in the world. One keystone to Compaq's success was being the first computer producer to offer a sub-$1000 computing system that brought the affordability of PCs to more households around the world.
By 2002, Compaq had become part of the Hewlett-Packard (HP) group and now manufactures and sells their computers under the HP umbrella. Included in these systems, is the Presario line of personal computing laptops and notebooks.
The Presario CQ60 series notebooks by Compaq offer some of the best features found in any mid-sized laptop on the market. Every Compaq Presario comes with Windows Vista (service pack 1 included) installed, with an option to upgrade to Windows Vista Premium and not just one standard AMD processor, but a choice of processors. Choose from the AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core Processor and the AMD Turion X2 Dual Core Mobile Processor. A 15.6 inch High Definition HP Brightview diagonal widescreen monitor, built in Wi-Fi, optional microphone and webcam are some of the other leading edge options available with the Presario.
An 8X DVD R/RW Super-Multi Drive, with double layer support, comes standard with the option to upgrade to the LightScribe DVD Super-Multi drive.
The Compaq Presario comes with the HP style imprinted glossy black design as well as HP's world class warranties and customer support systems to back the promise of Compaq's ongoing dedication to put quality and efficient productivity, at an affordable cost, in the hands of the consumer.
From the time that Compaq came to the market as a supplier of computing systems and high quality laptop parts for affordable laptop repair, the company has maintained a commitment to quality at low cost. Today, as a brand name under HP, the Compaq Presario notebooks continue those traditions of quality, service, and affordability.
