Compaq Presario 17" Laptop
This laptop is a great value! 17" screen, built in webcam, a brushed steel-esque cover with more durability than other painted surfaces, and the digital media reader that lets you transfer your digital pictures in seconds. A great computer for a great price.
Great screen, nice keyboard, fast processor, not plastic, great battery life, can run Windows if you need to do so, GREAT customer service. No Blu-Ray. Lets face it, you do not need it and it is buggy and a dying technology.
this is like an uber computer if you're going to splurge on it!
I've got backlit keyboard added to my specs as well - that's super sweeeeeet!
