  • Good display and widescreen for video purpose
  • Touchpad response is very good and highly sensitive
  • Fast performance
  • Affordable


  • Poor Battery Backup
  • Gets overheated quickly
  • A bit bulky, not for mobile use
  • Webcam quality is not the best in industry
  • Wi-Fi and HDMI ports are missing


Compaq Presario is the affordable brand of HP notebooks and CQ61-300 is inline with this concept. The notebook has all the basic softwares like OS, Good RAM and Intel processors with big screen to make it a good choice for your desktop replacement or home use. If they would have included HDMI port and Wi-Fi then it would have got that extra edge from other notebooks in this range. Poor battery and over heating are two major performance issues with this notebook. If you are planning to use it in home then you can buy it. If you can expand your budget a bit more, I would recommend to have a look at Dell Studio 15 notebook. If you are looking for something else or have a query, please comment. We would love to provide you the requested details as soon as possible.
