Product Information

product description

The Compaq CQ58-278SA 15.6” Laptop packs a punch with intelligent Windows 8, a powerful 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i3 processor and an HD webcam with image-sensing technology.

Windows 8

From imaginative apps, to a personalised tiled home screen, Windows 8 teams with the Compaq’s multitouch gesture touch pad to give you a faster and fully interactive operating system.

Highly functional and fun to navigate, Windows 8 has incorporated all the strong points of Microsoft’s previous operating system together with some fresh, new ideas.

Personalise the start screen so your laptop works how you want it to, download apps to connect you to your favourite services on the web and access your files anywhere using your smartphone or tablet with the cloud.

Small and powerful

With its slick design and weighing just 2.45 kg, the Compaq CQ58-278SA is a perfect travelling companion, so your laptop can go wherever you go.

Big things come in small packages and the Compaq is no exception with an impressive 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i3 processor and 4 GB of RAM that facilitate brilliantly smooth multitasking, whether you’re watching films, browsing the internet or getting some work done.

The laptop also comes with a few delightful extras, despite its petite build. Embrace multimedia and directly upload photos onto your Compaq laptop using the multi-format digital card reader, or quickly browse the web using its high speed LAN.

Look great in HD

Chat with friends and family or shoot quality videos in Full HD with the HP True Vision webcam. Whatever the time of day, image-sensing technology allows the webcam to adjust the light settings ensuring the best possible image is transmitted, even in the lowest light.

The notebook also has a back-lit LCD display with HD Brightview screen technology built in, letting you experience brilliant high-contrast, richly-coloured imagery with a high-gloss, anti-reflective finish.

Easy on the eyes and driven by an Intel HD 3000 graphics card, this 15.6" display renders all your entertainment, web pages and work documents in superb high definition for comfortable prolonged use.

These sumptuous visuals are accompanied by high-quality stereo sound courtesy of the built-in Altec Lansing speakers, delivering movie soundtracks and your favourite music in beautifully detailed, satisfyingly punchy sound.

Total connectivity

Enjoy HD audio-visual connectivity and signal transfer using the provided HDMI port, and make use of the VGA connection to hook the notebook up to a compatible TV for comfortable large-screen enjoyment.

A display port is on hand for external monitor connection, and there’s a 3.5 mm headphone/audio-out jack for more discreet audio enjoyment or external speaker connection.

There are three USB 2.0 ports on hand to accept memory sticks, external hard drives, graphics tablets and other compatible USB peripherals to really expand your computing experience.

Watch DVDs and enjoy music CDs with the SuperMulti DVD±R/RW with double layer support. It’s perfect for keeping yourself entertained on the go, or enjoying content in a separate room so as not to disturb those watching TV in your house.
