Compaq Presario X1000: Worthy Investment


The Presario X1000 series offers most of the creature comforts of a desktop PC in a lighter package than you’d expect.

The good: Lightweight for a desktop replacement; 15.4-inch, wide-aspect display; impressive battery life; Secure Digital slot; top-notch keyboard.

The bad: Lacks DVD burner; skimpy one-year warranty.

The Compaq Presario X1000 series nearly matches the Dell Latitude D800 series in almost every category, making it one of the best desktop-replacement systems on the market. It also shoehorns a lot of capabilities into a comparatively trim profile. The model we tested featured a 15.4-inch, wide-aspect display; a top-shelf 1.6GHz Pentium M processor; 512MB of RAM; and an 80GB hard drive. In our tests, it readily crunched spreadsheets, displayed presentations, and ran DVDs and games. In fact, the only mobile hot button the Presario X1000 series lacks is a DVD-rewritable drive. (The company expects to offer a DVD+R/+RW burner as an option later this summer.) If you need a desktop replacement that's easier on the shoulder than many, the Presario X1000 packs in the features without packing on the pounds.
