Compaq CQ42

I find this is a good laptop, ya there have been not much few thing which need to be taken care. its a good reasonable with all the requirements. As I was reading some reviews of my friends mentioned they are absolutely true..the touch pad is giving little bit problem, in other word not problem like sometimes stucks you have try once more. Overall you can say its a good laptop to purchase. Though I have not purchased from flipkart still you can buy wherever you want, but If you buy from flipkart you will get the same benifit than outside.
