I wish it were a modular bay, it would have been nice to slap on an extra battery. There is also some other flaw which I have discovered. Make sure they do not fall off or move while working on the computer. This is a pretty pathetic lock slot.

Coupled with the new processors, a new chipset has also been added to the portfolio. So far no stability issues whatsoever. Another one in the lineup is the RSTanother variant to the M chipset with a local frame buffer see below. The build was not very difficult as long as you take your time and do things carefully.

On a good note, the ram, wireless card, and hard drive are accessible by removing the palm rest which is held on by 6 screws and about tabs.

Wireless reception is ok. The wireless card and hard drive are under the palm rest.

Out of the box it provides you with a I ignored the Compaq Vz series because I had heard quite a few bad things about Compaq, but now after taking a serious look at Compaq they seem to be making high quality products. I have been averaging around 3. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Finally, I got fed up and talked to Raymond in tech support.

Upon calling, I ended up talking to a tech whom knew nothing about this computer. Asus laptops also have a same setup.

Ac input is v hz. In regards to the keyboard problems, I have communicated to Raymond about pressing multiple keys and not having them register. However this card has a built in gem, — Bluetooth.


Screws are small, be very careful when removing and installing. The magnetic wireless antennas can easily be moved, so when reinstalling the top panel which has the power buttons, make sure the antennas are properly placed. It is a known issue that the Bluetooth on the Ra Link cards may not register on this computer.

My only complaint is that the power port is on the side versus being out of the way in the back. It supported my desired AMD processor and had integrated graphics ts480 surpasses that of integrated Intel graphics.
