The Compaq Presario CQ61-420us is a 15.6” Windows 7 laptop released in early 2010 by Compaq Presario as an inexpensive, but fast performing solution for casual and business users alike. It features an AMD Athlon Dual-Core processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 250GB SATA hard-disc drive. Included also is an ATI graphics card & Altec Lansing speakers for playing video games, both wired and wireless Internet, and a DVD SuperMulti drive. The area in which the CQ61-420us most lacks is connectivity, as it includes only the basic ports: USB, a mic, a headphone, and VGA. This has left critics confused as to why no HDMI or DVI is supported, especially since the unit was apparently built for multimedia use.
