The biggest selling brand of laptop is HP, also known as Compaq. They lead the way in laptop sales worldwide with a good range of laptops to suit everybody. From small, cheap netbooks ideal for the kids to business notebooks and home entertainment centres, Compaq has it all.
Being the biggest selling brand also means that replacement parts are readily available, although this is something of a double-edged sword. Original brand parts and generic versions are available in large numbers, which means that on the one hand, you have plenty of choice, but on the other, there is a greater chance you will get an inferior product with lots of inferior manufacturers cutting corners to keep costs down.
Looking at Compaq laptop chargers online, you will see huge numbers of retailers offering such a product. It can be overwhelming trying to make head or tail of this and with varying quality of products, you’ll want to get your decision right.
The easiest way to ensure quality is to go for an OEM product. OEM stands for ‘original equipment manufacturer’ so in this instance, that would be Compaq (or HP). The fact that OEM has become such a widely used term is a reflection of the fact that it indicates quality. Original brand products should be reliable and long-lasting.
The Compaq CQ61 is a laptop that is often seen on sale. It comes with different specifications and is therefore basically something that you can customise according to your needs and budget. If you want good performance, it’s also worth getting Windows 7 as this should have a noticeable impact.
However, no matter how good your laptop, at some point you will probably need a replacement part. By shopping around and looking for original brand equipment, you should be able to keep your laptop running for quite some time.
