Cheap computers for simple tasks.
Compaq has produced computers since 1982. They focus on creating cheap laptops for simple tasks such as surfing, Facebook, YouTube, Skype, Spotify and online banking. Despite the low price you get good support and a good guarantee, since Compaq is now owned by IT giant HP. Webcam, DVD burner, wireless networking and USB ports are always included. For those who do not have large demands for powerful performance, the Compaq Presario series is a good option.
The Verdict: Very cheap, good for simple tasks, good support.
Update: Compaq Presario range has now been discontinued.
