Light leakage is very minimal, much better than the norm I would say. Being a ThinkPad owner, I knew the keyboard on the Compaq would be a step backwards. The case on the F is made of smooth plastic. The sound quality is good for a notebook, better then my ThinkPad which has poor speaker placement. It sort of makes a thud when you close it.

It sort of makes a thud when you close it. I wanted a notebook with a nice bright glossy screen as a contrast to my darker screened ThinkPad. Out of the box performance was quite sluggish due to having Vista in conjunction with the low amount of memory and the bloatware.

Performance on the drive was good. While key travel is good, key depth is shallower than I would like. Or choose door No. Nor does it write on anything. I am sure the first thing you are going to want to do if you buy this notebook is upgrade the memory.

Sempron and performance are usually not used in the same sentence, especially where Vista is concerned.

It does not have a PC or ExpressCard slot, nor a card reader which is standard equipment on most fs8a1p. Storage by Rick Broida Nov 12, CD is but DVD is not.
