Compaq CQ2009F Desktop PC is one of the desktop which accommodate the new, low energy, Intel Atom 230 as the main processing unit. Since the Atom processor is designed especially to save more energy, there is no doubt that this desktop is environmental friendly. Even if you turn it on all the time, you’ll hardly notice any increase on your electrical bill. This is because the Atom processor consumes only 2.5 watt of power, compared to 35 watts of the Core 2 Duo Processor, which is less than 10% of its big brother.
Although the processor is not powerful, this tiny machine uses 1 GB of RAM which is more than enough for daily activity, such as: Office application, Internet, Music, Video and several games which are not so heavy. The RAM itself is not upgradeable, and even though it can, there wouldn’t be any significant increase since the processor is not as powerful as Core 2 Duo Processor. In my opinion it is wise that Compaq limits the maximum RAM since it will prevent the processor from overused and overheated.
For those who are tight in budget, Compaq CQ2009F Desktop PC is the ultimate choice since the price is very cheap compare to the features it offered. Amazon has a deal for this desktop at around US$ 269, this is a very good opportunity to get a good and also affordable computer for your children. It’s cheap and since Compaq is a well-known brand, we know that it is not “cheapy”. Its small size is also just right for the children as it is not so big and also not to heavy. Also remember that even though you buy this desktop for your children, it doesn’t mean that you cannot use it for yourself. The hardware specification is more than enough for average adult usage.
This computer doesn’t come with monitor and speaker, therefore do not forget to get them if you haven’t own them yet. Acer LCD Monitor is also quite cheap and has a good quality. You may consider this option for your Compaq Desktop. For the speaker, you have to choose your own as there are bunch of options depending on your style and need.
