The Compaq Presario (Model: CQ56-115DX) laptop features an AMD V-Series processor, a 15.6″ display and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium.
This laptop is powered by the AMD V-Series (model v140) processor. This is a single-core, 64-bit processor running at 2.3GHz. It has 512KB of L2 cache and was built using a 45nm process. This chip has 25W profile. This system comes with 2GB of DDR3 system memory. This is on the low end, which matches the processor.
The display is a 15.6″ diagonal High-Definition HP BrightView LED screen with a resolution of 1366×768. The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics card. This has 256MB of dedicated memory and can support up to 893MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. Shared memory slows your system down during graphically intensive processes like games, but with the processor, and memory you’re not buying this one to play games.
Like the graphics card and processor, the hard drive is low-end too. It’s a 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) drive rotating at 5400RPM. This will be enough for a majority of people, but it would be nice to have something bigger. The optical drive is a SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support. This laptop does not come with a media reader slot.
For networking you get a 10/100Base-T Ethernet LAN adapter accessible through a standard RJ-45 connector. For wireless you get a built-in high-speed wireless LAN adapter compatible with 802.11 b/g/n.
External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 VGA port, 1 headphone and 1 microphone jack.
This Presario comes installed with Genuine Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium. Other software includes Adobe Reader, Adobe Flash, Cyberlink DVD Suite, Cyberlink MediaShow and more. Microsoft Office 2010 also included (product key card required for activation; sold separately).
The laptop measures 14.72″x9.70″x1.29″/1.49″ and weighs 5.6 pounds. The 6-cell Lithium Ion battery pack can provide up to 4 hours and 15 minutes of unplugged power.
