one thing i found lack in our Special Interest -> Mobile Computing mostly is the review. it will be good if the ts/owner can give some review along with few pictures (not the one taken from the official web etc).

if possible, do the review, a quick review is fine too biggrin.gif

hi guys,

yea received my lappy CQ45-129TX yesterday and busy installing softwares and drivers since then. hehehe.

At time when ordered the graphic spec was supposed Intel X4500 but it came with Nvidia 9200M GS, which is a SURPRISE BONUS! hehehe.

The only matter must wait, wait and wait.... I have waited 11 working days for delivery. HP delivery is slower than Dell. But given this is cheapest price i ever surveyed, even lower than Lowyat Plaza, so I dont mind.

Overall my experience with the seller is very satisfactory. His follow-up service is veri great indeed. Top notch. ^^b


To all Compaq CQ series buyers:
=====================
1) the front panel is glossy plastic and very very very very very very prone to scratch. Even a slightest scratch is VISIBLE on the front panel and difficult to wipe off. Apply with laptop skin ASAP once u get the lappy. I am searching for transparent skin now. Anyone has it? PM me ya. hehehe.

2) The HDD still lay beneath at left palm rest area like V3800 series. So you will feel the warm. To dissipate the heat, always take out the Express Slot plastic cover. It helps a little. tongue.gif
Here i attach some pictures taken this morning. See to appreciate.  icon_rolleyes.gif

Mine is auto-loaded with Dos Menu with Vista/XP/Command Line. The splash screen just appears 1 second then continue with Vista loading.

Oh you mean at the BIOS menu, the Factory Installed OS: Not Vista?

Nothing special about that. Just only becoz we purchased the Freedos version. I think that's for HP service centre to identify when we send for repair.

If i were to upgrade i will get 2 x 2gb DDR2 800mhz.

Which seller can give the best price? hehe.
