PC Magazine: “The Compaq Presario V2000 packs a lot into its slender 5.4-pound frame, including a widescreen display, a good set of speakers, and well-placed connectivity ports. If inexpensive mobility is what you’re after, the V2000 is your answer.”
Notebook Review: “Although the Compaq Presario V2000 is not the smallest and lightest notebook on the market, I am happy that I bought this computer. The widescreen design gives the V2000 a significant functional advantage with little impact on its portability. Despite a few minor design concerns (the AC input on the back panel, the CD drive door, and the thickness), I would recommend this to computer to someone who wants a middle-of-the-road computer for decent price. The custom options allowed me to build a computer that suited my basic needs while keeping the cost within my range. The custom options are also flexible enough that more sophisticated users can upgrade to more powerful options. This makes the V2000 well-suited to a wide range of users.”
