You think compaq are bad... try using a packard bell. I saw this one advertised 3 months ago. On closer examination it had:
1: Onboard agp graphics
2: Riser card for expansion slots (no chance of a new mobo then)
3: 2 pci slots on riser card
4: 64 mb ram SOLDERED onto the mobo (no chance of keeping that for any upgrades)
5: On board sound (ok its a live)
If you ever want to upgrade then the only thing from inside you could take are the cdrom, the HDD or the AMAZINGLY "fast" K6 2 450.
Now here's the really stupid part.
In order to help make it look like a good deal they shove tons of absolutely usless programs onto the HDD. The result is that the 10GB HDD has only 1GB free. You could hardly install Word and a game onto that!
Oh and the price £500. (or $708.095)
Man how I laughed.
