Compaq Presario CQ5210F


The CQ5210f has a bunch of Compaq bloatware on it: those extra added programs that you never asked for, but get anyway. The extraneous shortcuts for eBay, Snapfish (a photo service owned by HP), offers for dial-up Internet (NetZero, Juno, MSN), and My...

Speedy for a cheap PC. Good bang for the buck. More expandable than a nettop or small form factor desktop

Weak integrated graphics. Only 60-day subscription to Norton Internet Security. No media card slots. Bloatware

If you want to pay nettop prices for a higher-end multimedia performance from your PC, take a look at the Compaq Presario CQ5210f. It gives you the full multimedia computing power you want, yet comes in at under $400 (without monitor).

Mighty Little Beast For A Nice Price


I bought a GeForce GT220 to replace the onboard video and gaming with this thing is respectable. Batman: Arkham Asylum, Left4Dead, even Crysis (on low to medium settings) can run on this without breaking a sweat. I bought an 8 channel sound card to go...

A rather powerful computer for the price ; The 2.7 dual core processor cuts right through everything I've thrown at it thus far ; The 3 gbs of RAM are more than enough to run Aero, and memory intensive programs, all at once with very little to no lag....

Onboard graphics, the GeForce 6150SE just barely gets by on it's own. Watching a movie is no problem, but Flash 10.1 with HD or Blu-Ray will definitely not work. At least, not well ; Onboard sound is good, but not great. It is 6 channel, however, so...

very nice


Great computer for the price!

Great and cheap, bought this from officemax for black friday and i figured id just review it. it runs great, windows 7 is amazing. i put my radeon 4350 i had laying around in it and it plays games like modern warfare 2 great. im waiting for my 5770 and...

the integrated nVdia stuff isnt too good but its great if you're not gaming, just pick up like a 4670 for around $60 and you'll be fine though. its $390 on newegg, got it for $300 black friday from officemax

solid work machine


This computer is a very solid work machine. It's not really meant for gaming though. If you don't need the resources for high end games, this is a great computer especially since it's so cheap. It has plenty of USB ports, so it's real easy to add...

My mom and I just bought this computer, and already I am impressed with it. It runs smoothly, and so far there have been no complications. The setup was fast and simple. This is a major improvement from our previous computer that was an XP and was...
