Reviews for the HP Compaq Presario F560US
Let's face it, if you're considering the Compaq F560us, either times are tough or you're cheap. I would place myself into the latter category. In either case you're probably going to have to make some trade-offs. I wanted a notebook with a nice bright glossy screen as a contrast to my darker screened ThinkPad. I don't need a lot of performance. The Sempron fills that role well. I was willing to live with the lesser quality and performance to get the nice screen. For someone who justs needs a box for every day tasks like music or Internet, doesn't need superior quality/service and doesn't have a lot of money to spend, I think the F560 offers good value.
