Source: Computer Shopper
Now available at Walmart, the 15.6-inch Compaq Presario CQ60-419WM will meet bare-bones computing needs for a starting price of $298, which is actually cheaper than most netbooks. It is bulky, so don't expect to take it everywhere, but its cost and capabilities will satisfy those who need a laptop but don’t want all the trimmings and trappings that come with most standard-fare products. With a nice big screen and excellent video and audio quality, the CQ60-419WM will take care of your basic Web-surfing, word-processing, photo-viewing, TV-streaming, and DVD-playing needs. For $300, you get a 15.6-inch screen, a 160GB hard drive, and a DVD burner—all in a laptop that’s not an embarrassment to you. It's definitely worth checking out.
