The Compaq Presario R3000 laptop computer is a generally well rounded computer however it does not amaze the user with any new or high tech features not found on other websites. It is on the heavy side of the mid-sized laptop category coming in at around 8 pounds.
It is best suited for students or professionals that don’t mind the extra weight and wouldn’t be a hindrance to a casual gamer. One of the perks is the flash card reader build into the computer as well as a design that can withstand a lot of wear and tear. It has both a DVD and CDR/W drive and features a powerful sound with the JBL Pro speakers.
The 15.4 inch screen makes it great for watching videos online or DVDs with friends. The weight prohibits from being a real moveable laptop, but for college students looking for a great deal on a computer with good processing speed it is a good option.
