Last month I bought a new Compaq 510 notebook for my self :D. So just wanted to share my experience with you people. First have a look at the specs. It is not so highly configured but still its a decent choice if you are planning to use it for office work.
Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T5870 2 GHz
1 GB RAM (expandable up to 4 GB)
160 GB SATA drive (5400 rpm)
Mobile Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100
Microsoft DirectX 10 capable
14.0 – inch screen
Battery Li-Ion 6-cell
Weight: 2.27 kg
Wireless 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN
3 USB 2.0 ports
Built in Card Reader
And the best part is its price. I got it for only 25000/- INR . That is just around 550 USD.
It comes with a FreeDOS installed in it. You can install the OS of your choice later on.I have made it dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10. Both are running perfectly. The performance is up to the mark. Did not have to install any additional drivers. Everything was running fine in Windows 7 and Ubuntu. The looks are pretty simple and that is how I like it.
If you are planning to buy a low budget notebook with decent configuration then you must check this one out. And if you live anywhere around Mumbai then you can contact me as well. I can get you this at even more cheaper rate. You can send me your queries related to this at email@example.com.
