Certainly inexpensive, possibly not up to gaming though I would say.
In general use it should perform reasonably well for a low end machine.
Compaq are not the most reliable of consumer machines.
Toshiba or Asus seem to be considered better by the more knowledgeable
people on this forum from what I have read.

Yeah but that said I've been impressed with the latest Compaq machines I've seen (laptops at least).

At $500, you can't really go too wrong :) As mentioned, it'd be great for everything *but* gaming...

Based on the assumption that the graphics card is an intergrated one, the laptop is okay for general purposes.
