4-0 out of 5 stars An old calculator.
Well, I got a HP-33S wich is HP-32SII sucessor for just U$49,99. It is much more powerfull than 32SII with 31kB of memory! Of course 33S does not have the same quality of old ones and does not have the same good finishing but is better. Things I don't like in 33S include the very limited complex algebra which comes from 32SII! There are no matrix algebra as well! I know some people love this calculator, like 15C, but there are better new ones. One I don't say the same is the also old 42S. There are people buing it for $299. My brother has one and I would like to have one too.

1-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for antiques collection
I recently sold my HP 32SII at decent price on Ebay. The people who are recommending the calculator are mostly living in a different world and not computer literate. Or that they are sentimental of their calculator like many weird people who are obsessed with different things. If you are interested in a piece of antique, go ahead. If you are real professional, short on time, and tech savvy then HP 32SII will disappoint you. HP has come up with 33S and there is no reason to buy this one for three times the price of new 33S.

5-0 out of 5 stars My second one...
I left my first one, bought new, in a plane! Then got a used one several yrs ago for $60; I am tempted to sell it for $300 but HP makes nothing like it anymore. A sad day indeed for HP. My back ups are 48G's that I purchased used, and will be getting a 33s but this one is the best HP I have ever owned. RPN rules!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Geeks Unite
The HP 32SII is the best scientific and engineering calculator EVER made.It's that simple!Simplicity in design, elegance in form, excellence in function, and as durable and reliable under fire as a Russian rifle at Stalingrad. It was an ever present reminder, right in the palm of our hands, what engineers should strive for...and now its gone.

Would Levis discontinue, 501's?Volkswagon learned the hard way when they abandoned the very thing that what made them great.What middle manager at HP is responsible for this blunder.

Geeks Unite!We are naturally a silent bunch, but this is getting personal, its time to speak out.They didn't discontinue the MBA's 12C, another timeless engineering masterpiece.No No.HP used to be a company of engineers, by engineers, for engineers.

Send Carly a letter, before they dismantle the factories. They are messing with what made them great. In stark cotradiction to Moores Law, the HP32SII is every bit as useful today as the day it was introduced, and will be until laptops cost $60 bucks.I'll get a spare at [way more money].Hell, I can even go surfing with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sniff - I'll miss it.
This is the best calculator I have ever used. It was perfect, small and elegant. RPN made calulations quick, and the 4 stacks made multiple operations or complex equations easy to solve. It had everything I needed, if not graphing which i rarely do anyway save with a computer. I wish It hadn't been discontinued. I've used these since 1993, and would still have one now, if it hadn't been stolen. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars best pocket pc I ever had
I bought HP iPAQ 1910 Pocket PC about 2 months ago. I talked to all the sales rep at the computer store & electronic store such as Bestbuy & Circuitcity about the difference between MS Window base & Palm OS base. Everyone recommend the Window based model and specially this model (HP iPAQ 1910 Pocket PC). I didn't know anything about that at that time & I just bought it. I also have a friend who bought Sony Clie model which is Palm OS based. I guess he paid almost about the same price I paid to mine. We compared those two and we found out HP iPAQ 1910 Pocket PC is much faster, more memory... a lot better machine. He finally bought HP iPAQ 1910 Pocket PC (same as mine) for this Chistmas. He & I really like this pocket PC & you will love it, too.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great start but weak on key options and features
Well, got the new IPAQ yesterday in the mail. WOW, what a great little PDA. Other reviewers have talked about the wonderful features and such. However, let me share my initial experience trying to find some of the key accessories and features. First, missing from the product is any kind of protective cover. Drop this little gem the first time on a hard floor and its going to be toast. Checked the HP site and discovered they offer no solutions for the 1910 yet. Third party products look very bulky (so called universal solutions) for this very slim unit. Second, there is no built in JPEG file viewer. You must go to the the MS site and purchase a third party product. This viewer should have been bundled with PC 2002 operating system. Third, try as I might, find a way to delete files within the file exployer is not possible. I finally resorted to accessing the PDA from the desktop system to eliminate unwanted files. Forth, I discovered a website dedicated to tracking bugs in PocketPC 2002....there are lots of them [local website] and many are still unresolved.

Bottomline: Love the size, price and screen...but not impressed by the lack of critical accessories and features of PocketPC 2002. I would have thought that this hot product would have had a better launch.

5-0 out of 5 stars One should try this
I received iPaq as a birthday gift from my fiance.I know quite well about electronics.
My initial impression was Wow..
The Display/Graphics is extremely pleasing.Navigation is very simple..so any starter who is not very techno savvy can operate this PC with ease.Since the operating system is Windows CE,its very simple to browse thru(as many are familiar with Windows GUI).The best feature ofcourse is Outlook Syncup (must for all Pocket PCs ofcourse) but its easy and quick.The software installation is not too difficult either.The sound quality is good and works great with a Secure Digital card as well.

Now for a few Cons,
The conventional "CROSS" at Top,right hand corner doesnot stand for "Closing" of the program but it means "Minimising" the screen.That leaves your program still running in Backgroud.So even if the display shows your "desktop" (Today screen) there are functions running in backgroud...This will make your PC freeze often if many programs are running.
This PC freezes very often and I have to reset it then.
If it freezes real bad then you will have to Hard reset it which means your data is lost.
So I would suggest that "Stop" all the running programs at certain intervals..You have that option in "Settings".

But overall I am very happy with the performance...
I would advise one to buy it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sync problems keep cropping up/no support
I've had mine for 1.5 years, and it's very useful, except for one problem. I can't sync. At all.

At first it synced fine, but after a while, I had occasional problems and would have to spend hours getting it to work, because my comp would not be able to find the device (I've found many reasons for this, and trust me - they are a pain to chase down - even fluff in the connector and an iffy signal to the interface will do the trick). This time, I've spent a week of evenings searching for the solution. When I checked the HP Web site, this item was totally lacking in help, I believe because it is no longer sold. My comp is fine, the device is fine, and the Activesync is there - they just are not speaking. I call this the "family feud PDA" - they are close, they are family - they won't talk.

I've given up on it - bought a Palm-based product for a bit higher cost. So easy, plus it has a camera, an MP3 player, and it syncs!

2-0 out of 5 stars hp1910 - Nice size, lousy hardware, would not buy again
I've used PDAs for 10+ years and this unit does not compare favorably. Best features: Screen is great, software on the PDA works great. Three biggest drawbacks: 1)Unprotected buttons on front and side lead to inadvertent activation of software and battery drain whenever the unit is touched (think pocket, purse or briefcase), 2) this unit communicates only through synchronization, there is no way to communicate with any other hardware (no GPS, no serial port connection, etc.), and 3) the Microsoft ActiveSync software and/or the interface with this device is buggy (I've had lots of problems that were only recoverable by finding and deleting folders and files on my PC and then starting the connection process from scratch). I would not buy this product again and was very disappointed to uncover the missing serial port capability (not obvious until I got the unit home). ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not for Scrapbookers!
If you are thinking of buying this printer because of the capability of printing on 12 x 12 inch paper for scrapbooking, DO NOT PLAN TO USE IT TO PRINT PHOTOS. The photo quality is actually worse than my old 3-color, HP 700 series printer. The horizontal markings from the printing are so bad it looks like you have printed on corragated cardboard. The image quality is fuzzy, and the colors are not true-to-life.

1-0 out of 5 stars absolute lemon
I probably have as much experience with 11x17 capable color printers as anyone in the world and I've got to say this is easily the most difficult and unsatisfactory printer I have ever dealt with. HP's last 11x17 product (1220c) had amazing print quality, was faster, and lasted me for 3 solid years of heavy use. By contrast, the 9650 is MUCH slower for "best" print setting and MIND BOGGLINLY SLOW for its "maximum DPI" setting...try 35minutes for an 11x17 plot. Unacceptable. Not to mention that my printer is now broken and wont print at all.

2-0 out of 5 stars Expensive, slow, and an ink hog as well
I don't normally buy HP printers but was looking for a speedy model for use in a work environment and was told this would be a good fit. First off, if there's a slower printer on the market today I would be amazed. My 4 year old Epson 880 will print 3-4 pages per minute faster than this unit, and the prints look far better on the Epson. Have not found 13x19 paper so I cant say how this works. The ink cartridges run out too fast to be of any use. For the price there aren't any good reasons to buy this unit. There has to be better large format printers out there, keep looking.

3-0 out of 5 stars Always a fight to get a print out of it.
I love my HP deskjet 5550 printer for high quality photo prints. The 9650 sounded like the same system with a larger paper size. It's not. HP doesn't make 13x19 photo paper and this printer doesn't want to feed other brands. The ink consumption is high, but the ink cartridges are the same size as for smaller printers - a $60 set of cartridges is good for about 10 pics! When the ink cartridges are low, annoying warning messages pop up on the screen of my WindowsME PC and come back again as soon as I dismiss them (have to find the Task Bar icon, right click and pick EXIT) - this is Bill Gates kind of helpful! Right now I can't print or communicate with the printer because it's busy flashing low-ink error lights (on my 5550 I can get many good 8x10 pics out after the first ink warning). It's a fight to get a print every time I use this printer. If you like Epson colors (I don't - they're too red for me) get one of theirs. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Funky Construction
I must say, for such a ...piece of equipment, this device is not made very well. Before I purchased the Compaq, I owned a Palm V. Whereas the Palm never failed me, in less than a year of ownership, the Compaq has developed several problems:

* My Compaq has fried its memory repeatedly
* The stylus no longer clicks into place, that mechanism has apparently broken.
* The silver coating is coming up

The color screen is nice, but doesn't make up for the headache or the cost. I wish I'd just purchased another Palm V when my last one was stolen.

3-0 out of 5 stars Almost Excited
Compaq has a winner here in the base technology but it needs a tune-up big time (which is happening as we 'sync').

Summarily, you get a cool little computer with a stubborn streak and a big mouth that can thankfully be turned down, with MUCH more space and operational capacity than a Palm, but still not enough for most people to call it Home.

Thanks to the back light, you can actually >see< the information, which is a clever bonus. Unlike some PDAs, there is no drab olive-green screen to twist your eyes into pretzels. Its like you're in a little office with the flourescents on.

The 'sync' software works (ok), just don't expect any pampering like the Palm people gave us with their one-button push sync. You'll work for this peanut, baby. It has the distinct flavor of rushed-out backroom benchmarking.

But after several knock-down drag-outs you'll (hopefully) find your feet and eventually get your Purple Heart, and then you're ok; you become VALIDATED, a part of the GREAT-SYNC legion - a surviving Groto of the IPAQ challenge, the strong, the proud, the survivors. Or else you'll have a _________ yard-sale or throw it in the trash (I dare you.)

So go ahead and stick MS Outlook in the Start-Up menu, cause she's a legend in her own mind and hates to be left out of the fuss (sync loop), (this is one thing, among others, they don't mention).

If you get through the software installation, wait 30 or 60 seconds til blastoff, and make a connection, you might actually get to build a working relationship or two..but don't get comfortable. LOL.

Hey, why can't the Compaq people invite the Palm people to a pool party, and let them explain how to make (like they did A LONG TIME AGO!!!) that INGENIOUS ONE-TOUCH SYNC BUTTON and that TOTALLY FUNCTIONAL (AND PRETTY) PALM DESK-TOP SOFTWARE, that makes you the king of your castle, not a serf in a wrestle.

The bad news: you just heard some.

The good news: It's a buyer's market baby on the 3670 due to the yard sales from the frustrated and upgraders - and after all, it is a cool little computer. So why not test your skills and pick one up?

Take a hint from Nike..JUST DO IT!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great unit - NO Battery Life.
I've owned the Palm V (Monochrome)...Palm 505 (Color)...and the iPaq 3670 (Color).

Now, the Compaq screen wins hands down. It's bigger since the keyboard and hand recognition areas hide, releasing the screen space for images, text, etc. Plus, don't forget the MP3 player, which the Palm does NOT have (I think they only beep, how embarassing).

The programs are a bit memory hungry so it would be nice to have internal expansion for memory (64MB is really very little for this unit - the equivalent of 8MB in the Palm). Sounds weird, especially coming from an engineer, but that's how it feels. The Windows environment really gobbles up the memory. You can buy an expansion port that will hold additional memory, although with good management you can get away without expanding it.

The only real problem that I have with this unit is the battery life. Well, actually, WHAT BATTERY LIFE? If you play any game for 1.1/2 to 2 hours...you're out of battery!! If you leave the unit, WITHOUT USING IT, overnight - for two nights - you're out of battery again! Did I get a lemon? Do they all work like this? Does anyone sell battery packs that also include memory expansion? How does battery life compare with the Palm, you ask? Well, the Palm 505 (Color) will last about a week with decent everyday use and a lot of playing each day. The Palm V will last about 2 weeks (yes, WEEKS), with average use. The iPAQ will last 1 to 2 days with average use (and I'm being kind).

It's sad to see the best selling Pocket PC with such few options where accessories are concerned, shame on Compaq for not providing incentives to other manufacturers. Let's see how HP plays the game. Congratulations to the NEXICAM for bringing the first digital camera adapted for this unit. Now, they should have combined it with a battery pack, GPS, Cell Phone and Memory Slot - that way I could get rid of all the other gadgets that clutter up my night stand.

Want the best ? If you can live with low battery life, then this is your unit. I have a car charger and 110VAC-12VDC adapter that goes with me when I travel or I lose access to my contact information while I'm away.

5-0 out of 5 stars Head and shoulders above the rest
I was lucky enough to receive this as a gift and was totally blown away by the capabilities of this device. The ActiveSync software is almost transparent and you never have to worry about remembering to sync before you head out the door. A few of my favorite features are the voice recorder, Windows Media Player for mp3's (headphone jack is very nice), and the "transcriber" option, which could even recognize a doctor's handwriting. There are a ton of cool apps you can download/buy for this device, including maps, wireless web software, etc. If you can shell out the $$ and are looking for a handheld with a VERY high "cool factor" please check out the iPaq 3760.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Unit
This is a great unit. It would be nice if it could store the CF cards internally. Great features at a somewhat high price. Had a Palm V before this. The Pocket PC software offers far more features! Worth the extra $$$ ... Read more

I've waited until prices came down to finally invest in a decent digital camera - and the hp PhotoSmart M417 is my first purchase. I got it for about $150 after discounts.

It seems to have all the features you'd need for basic photo taking. The pictures come out clear and nice. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A dandy little workhorse that I don't leave home without!
As Robert Redford said in the film "Out of Africa" (speaking of a phonograph) "they've finally come up with something useful!" That is my opinion of the HP Photosmart 145. This is a dandy little workhourse that will generate countless 4 x 6 photographs from your digital camera with no hassle or fuss. The HP 145 is a small, tight little package that you can easily pack away and take along on trips.

The HP 145 really helps make the "digital darkroom" a reality, even during trips. I take mine on my boat together with a small laptop computer, and can generate high-quality 4 x 6 photos right on the spot, after taking shots with various digital cameras. The HP 145 has a built-in CF card reader and also reads various other popular media and you can easily print directly from the CF card or other media even without the laptop too--the printer will print out a nice little thumbnail "index" showing little minatures of the photos each bearing an index number. You can then select and print the full photo. This also means that you don't need to bring a card reader along if you have your HP 145 since it functions as a digital media reader. Typically I will download my digital photos to my notebook computer's hard disk using my HP 145, view the photos on the notebook screen for printing, and then print selected photos with the HP 145. Great fun!

My HP 145 installed effortlessly on my IBM Thinkpad notebook computer (IBM TP 600E) running Windows XP, and is now my main printer for 4 x 6 photos and of course is the only printer I take along on trips. It is great fun to go on trips, take photos, and then give friends nicely framed photos the next day, or later the same day. Frankly, I never realized how much fun it was to have a printer along on trips. Most printers nowadays are big and bulky. This one is not.

I went with the 145 rather than the 245, the latter being the same printer but with an LCD color display. I decided that I wouldn't get 50 bucks worth of value out of the LCD display since a) I always bring my laptop along anyway since that is where I always download my CF card pictures to for storage on trips (that way you can re-use the CF card the next day); and b) the 145 has that neat index printing feature anyway, if you want to print without a computer. You decide. Either way, these are dandy little printers and I will likely never take another trip without bringing my HP 145 along. That is the hallmark of a truly useful product!

5-0 out of 5 stars the whole family is printing photos at home!!!!!!
This printer is so easy to use. We had the printer set up within 10 minutes and printed photos using the few pieces of photo paper included with the printer. We're so excited we need to order more photo paper so we can print more family photos! The printer easily accepts the memory card from our HP camera. This is so much fun!!!!!!!!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great gadget
It's easy to use and produces nice looking prints. Its small size makes it easy to take to parties along with a digital camera for nearly instant prints. Cons: Costly supplies (ink and paper) and the paper feed mechanism can be a bit fussy sometimes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Owner / Printer which to blame?
The printer is supposed to pull the paper out the back end then it feeds it back through while it's printing. I give this printer 5 stars, sounds like the person who wrote the review who said the item had problems straight out of the box needs to realize the only problem with the HP printer is the person who purchased it!!!!

2-0 out of 5 stars Mechanical Failure
This highly innovative contraption is a wonder to behold, and had problems staight out of the box. I inserted my memory card, loaded the paper tray, made sure every setting was right, and pressed the print button. The paper immediately popped out the back end. Then, I spent the next three hours checking and rechecking the manual, doing everything right, and only got three prints. I strongly suggest that you find an alternative, since because of the mechanical design of this printer, I'm sure my problem is very common. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Eye-catching as well as highly functional, Compaq's iPAQ 3765 Pocket PC features a powerful new operating system, CompactFlash expandability, and a fast Intel processor. Its 64 MB SDRAM and 32 MB ROM provide enough memory to hold a robust package of applications while leaving you a lot of room for your own applications.

The enhancements and improvements in Microsoft's Pocket PC 2002 operating system make the iPAQ 3765 even more powerful and easier to use. You'll get improved handwriting recognition, more reliable synchronization, increased security, and the ability to chat via MSN Messenger. It also features new Pocket versions of Outlook, Word, Excel, and Internet Explorer.

Work hard, but play hard, too. The iPAQ 3765 can play digital audio files (both MP3 and WMA) using the Windows Media Player software. It's also compatible with audible.com files, for listening to audiobooks, radio broadcasts, and more. You also get the Microsoft Reader e-book software.

The color TFT screen produces 4,086 colors, and you can view the screen from many angles and in a variety of lighting. Using the optional expansion jacket, you can add memory and modules--such as modems and cameras--using CompactFlash cards.

Other highlights of the Compaq iPAQ include a microphone and a speaker, as well as an audio-in jack. It features an infrared port for wireless data transfer. The Compaq iPAQ uses five buttons plus a five-way joystick. The iPAQ connects to either USB or serial ports. The iPAQ allows you to input data in your own handwriting, by soft keyboard, or by voice recorder. Both audible and visual alarms alert you to a scheduled event.

At 5.11-by-3.3-by-0.62 inches and weighing 6.3 ounces, the iPAQ 3765 is sporty and small, fitting in your hand or sliding into your pocket with ease. Compaq has also built in utilities so that frequent actions--such as switching between tasks, adjusting volume, and changing backlighting--are only a click away.

The iPAQ 3765 has a built-in lithium rechargeable battery that gives up to 12 hours of battery life. It also comes with a docking cradle, AC adapter for battery charging, and a USB connection cable. Compaq offers a one-year warranty on parts and labor.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good job for Compaq
It' s very useful for daily life, I'm graduated student. I always use this thing for my lecture. You can use Word, Excel, Powerpoint in this machine. The best thing I will say is it's very easy to use because one of my friend use sony clie 760, and he told me to teach him uninstall the program for his machine, but I couldn't do it, because it's very difficult to do, but for iPaq you can use it easily like your desktop because of Window OS.
I like this iPaq because:
1. Easy to use.
2. Good design.
3. Big screen.
4. Good color display.
5. A lot of accessories.
6. A lot of good utilities programs.
7. Pocket PC 2002.
8. Easy to synchonize.
Its drawbacks:
1. Short battery life just couple hours.
2. No cover.
3. No compactflash slot.
4. I sometimes miss my appointments because I didn't hear reminder sound.
5. It'll be very too big to carry with compactflash jacket .
I absolutely recommend this product . I use it to manage my time schedule, banking account, dictionary, MP3, game, and Internet as well as MSN messenger. This product is much better than Palm pilot.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice Features but.....
I purchased this IPAQ about a month ago to use at home, work, and college. The main feature I like is being able to consolodate all phone numbers, contacts, and Microsoft Office documents into one little device. I've eliminated reems of paperwork with my IPAQ and I'm very glad I purchased it.

BUT the support from Compaq is terrible. I'm a Social Worker, NOT a computer programmer. Yet my IPAQ comes with a small owner's manual and very little useful online advice that is actually written in plain English. Navigating their web site is tricky. The PocketPC software (Microsoft) is mostly straightforward and easy to use (ingenious really), but there's no simple way to schedule an appointment with your contacts--why not? Isn't that why you buy a handheld computer?

Word of advice: If you're going to be using your IPAQ more than 4 hours a day, then you might want to upgrade to the IPAQ H3850 simply because the 3850 has a much longer battery life. My battery dies within about 2-4 hours on LOW power. The problem is you have to keep the unit charged to about 40% so it doesn't permanently lose all the data. Either upgrade to the 3850 or buy several AC adapters to charge the thing.

Even with all the complaints, I love the fact that my IPAQ has made me a much more productive student and employee.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
The Compaq iPAQ 3765 is an amazing PDA. Well, it's not really a PDA, it's an actual Pocket PC. You have to see it to believe it. It's got Pocket PC 2002, and it's awesome. It's got Microsoft Pocket Word, Pocket Excel, and basically Pocket outlook just spread into mini programs. If you don't want to sit at your computer and read your emails cause your in a rush, just sync your computer with your pocket pc and your ENTIRE inbox will be synced to your iPAQ. I basically created my iPAQ into a super iPAQ. I got the keyboard(which is fantastic), the dual slot flash card expansion pack, a 256 meg flash card, and a MGM flash card reader. A Palm pilot is NOTHING compared to what this thing can do. THey have so many application for this pocket pc. You can play your MP3's on windows media player, watch movies or clips on PocketTV(Download the software), Play games such as the Famous Age of Empires(INCREDIBLE) Rayman, Packman and many more. Print with it, play multiplayer games, make cartoons on PocketFlipbook(Download) surf the net(Need wireless), and more. Plus they now have mad an espansion card so you can get PHONE SERVICE on it. This is one of the greatest Technological creations ever.

5-0 out of 5 stars awsome
i paid $120 on other sites the same thing was going $499

4-0 out of 5 stars A high school junior
It helped me tremendously when doing my school work, This is because I could type notes on it (with an ipaq compatible keyboard, not included) without using a BULKY and indiscreet laptop, and easily EDIT my notes (sooo awesome and better than using the old fashioned wire-bound paper notebooks) when I transfer the notes to my computer. Highly recommended for students. BUT, the aspects of it that helped me in school are ones that you could find in almost any PDA retailing about $150 and up (due to "DocumentsToGo" and "4.0 student" software. Both are very necessary for students). You see, I had a Sony Clie SJ20 before I upgraded to this, and I realized that both did the same in terms of school work.

The main thing I don't like about it is the seemingly false advertising from compaq, saying you could get internet access. Not that you can't, you CAN, but only after purchasing

1) an expansion pack: WHEN YOU ADD THE EXPANSION PACK, FORGET THE TERM "POCKET PC" BECAUSE IT WILL NOT FIT WELL IN YOUR POCKET. It also makes it heavy. I hate the expansion pack because it's so bulky, and you can't find any cases on the market to fit the ipaq and the expansion pack, except for the case made by the manufacturer. I actually considered making my own case for it (because I'm into arts and crafts) just so I didn't have to spend more money on a case. Due to the expansion pack, I wanted to upgrade to one of the newer and smaller models of the ipaq because the unit is so indiscreet with the expansion pack.

2) A compatible Sierra Wireless Aircard: a lot of places don't even sell them

3) And setting up the internet service you will get (your new account) through a phone company. Hard for me, some places don't do internet access through pocket PCs.

Not to mention that the expansion pack is another $70-100 added onto the original price of the ipaq, and there's the price of the aircard and internet service (so monthly payments mean more money added onto the unit). So, when the company says, "internet access", be very wary of what you're getting into because a lot of leg work and money is involved. In total, the things previously mentioned are four extra things that would have made me not buy the ipaq if had known about them before.

The other thing I wasn't satisfied with is the windows media player, on which you can play MP3s. You can only play about seven of them, unless you install more memory (and getting more memory means getting a memory card, which means getting a dual slot expansion pack, which means more BULK...uggghh). I haven't tried a movie or any visual on it yet.

The battery power dies out quickly as well. So be prepared to see the "main battery low" sign appear on the screen every couple days or so (with regular usage).

Overall, if you want true satisfaction with this product, be willing to spend an extra $200-300, in addition to monthly internet service payments, and go through a lot of leg work.

MY SUGGESTION: buy a more expensive PDA that has built in internet access (well, if you want internet access at all...and if you don't, it's not really a pocket computer/PC), or simply save lots of money and don't buy a PDA with internet access. It seems that there are lots of great PDAs on the market that have all the same features that the ipaq 3765, minus the internet. Overall, the whole internet illusion that is set forth by pocket PC manufacturers isn't as easy to obtain as it seems with any pocket PC out right now (because even with the ones that claim they have built in internet, you still have to buy a specific and very expensive internet card, in addition to monthly service payments. Hope this helps!! ... Read more

The system is regular, normal I would say for any kid who is not looking for cutting edge games.
My biggest complain is that HP made this computer just for Windows XP Home edition. After installing Professional edition you will end up with no sound and may be some thing else. There are not drivers for this system if you change OS, basically you can not upgrade computer.

Amazon.com Product Description

Hit the road with the powerful, affordable Compaq Presario 2199US notebook PC and be confident that you have all the tools and documents you need to stay productive. The 2199US offers a 15-inch display, a battery-saving 2.13 GHz Mobile AMD Athlon XP-M processor, a DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive for playing DVD movies and burning your own music CDs, 40 GB hard drive, and 512 MB of installed RAM.

The Basics

  • Hard Drive: The 40 GB (4200 RPM) hard drive will be serviceable, providing ample storage for your documents and productivity applications, but it is on the low end of storage capacity when compared with other notebooks.
  • Processor: The 2.13 GHz Mobile AMD Athlon XP-M processor is designed to extend system battery life using AMD's proprietary PowerNow! technology, as well as support a wide range of wireless LAN standards--including 802.11g (54g)--and Bluetooth connectivity.
  • Memory: The 2199US comes with a 512 MB built-in memory (2 x 256 MB modules, DDR SDRAM, 266 MHz)--a good start for power users. It has two slots for upgrading memory to a maximum of 1 GB (2 x 512 MB).
  • CD/DVD Drive: It comes equipped with a combo DVD/CD-RW drive, which enables you to play DVD-ROM discs and DVD movies as well as burn data and record music to CD discs.
  • Keyboard & Mouse: The 2199US has a 101-key keyboard and touchpad with on/off button and dedicated vertical scroll up/down pad.
Sound and Graphics
The 2199US uses the ATI Mobility Radeon 4x AGP video/graphics card with 3-D architecture and 64 MB of shared DDR RAM, which provides good DVD movie playback and the ability to drive an external monitor. It has a 15-inch XGA TFT screen with a 1028 x 768 native resolution.

The audio card is integrated into the notebook's circuitry, which helps save on cost. The 2199US features two built-in stereo speakers.

Connectivity and Expansion Slots
The 2199US features a basic supply of external connections:

  • 2 USB 1.1 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players (note that this is not the faster USB 2.0 standard)
  • 1 parallel port for connecting older printers and scanners
  • 1 serial port for older peripherals such as early PDAs
  • 1 VGA monitor port
  • 1 S-Video out (for connecting to a TV)
  • 1 PCMCIA (or PC Card) slot (Type I/II/III compatible and 32-bit card bus)
  • 1 headphone jack and 1 microphone jack
It also has an integrated 56K modem (V.92) and an RJ-45 LAN network port (for a 10/100 Ethernet connection to networks and DSL/cable modems).

Preloaded System and Software
The 2199US comes with the Windows XP Home Edition operating system, and it also features Microsoft Works (for working with word processing and spreadsheet documents). Other preloaded software includes Norton Antivirus 2003 (with 60 days of complimentary live updates), Quicken, Microsoft Money, Microsoft Encarta Online Deluxe, Adobe Acrobat Reader, InterVideo WinDVD SE (for playing DVD movies), Roxio EasyCD Creator, and MusicMatch Jukebox.

Dimensions and Weight
Measuring 12.96 x 10.72 x 1.62 inches (L x W x H), it's a relatively compact laptop. It weighs a moderate 7.3 pounds.

Power
The included rechargeable lithium-ion battery has 8 cells (which refers to the number of charge-storing components within the battery) and offers a standard amount of power for a notebook PC (around 2 hours of typical use).

What's in the Box
This package includes the Compaq Presario 2199US notebook PC, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, AC adapter, phone cord, and operating instructions. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good everyday laptop
I got this laptop recently and I am very happy with it.

pros:

1) 15 inch display. It is very clear. Brightness is easily adjustable.
2) XP 2800. AMD Barton core. This is one fast processor. I would say that this processor is faster than any 1MB Centrino processors. (I have not used any 2MB Centrino processor machines to judge)
3) 512 MB RAM. You can really notice the difference over 256 MB ones.
4) Low price. Other notebook offering CD-RW/DVD combo, 40 GB, 512 MB RAM and fast processor are all generally $200 - $300 more expensive.
5) Relatively good battery life. I have gotten 2.5 - 3.75 hours of battery life. It really depends on what you do. If you play games, it will probably only last 1 hour. I have gotten 3+ hours of batter life watching movies on lower power setting. I use crystal CPUID to set the power setting instead of PowerNOW. It gives me more options, but also give you a chance to fry you CPU if you mess up.

cons:

1) USB 1.1 port and no firewire port. Basically means you cannot have fast access to external data. If you plan to do video editing, you will have to buy a firewire PCMCIA card. USB 1.1 is much slower compared to USB 2.0. Still, you should be able to get by to use with a digital camera.
2) High power consumption processor. This XP-M 2800 processor has a peak power consumption of 72W (compare to around 25W in Centrino). This puppy gets hot when running processor demanding applications. Mine CPU temperature have reached 82 degress celsius.
3) Integrated graphics card. Amazon mis-printed the graphics card for this unit, unless amazon.com gets different configurations from what I got. My unit has a RADEON IGP 320 integrated display card. It is not very fast, but still able to play some games depending how picky you are on video card. If you are getting a laptop to play the latest games, this laptop is not it.
4) The touchpad espically the scroll area is terrible. Whenever I try to type, my palm is on top of the scrollbar region of the touchpad causing my window to scroll up and down randomly. My only remedy is to disable the touchpad scrolling feature. All HP/Compaq had to do it to move the touchpad to the left 0.3 inches to solve this problem. I do not know what were they thinkging.
5) No integrated wireless card. Not a big deal. You can buy a PCMCIA with all the money you saved.
6) No docking station port. Probably not a big deal for most people.

5-0 out of 5 stars amazing laptop for the price u pay
the best laptop u can get for the price u pay. i cant understand why everybody is complaining about the tochpad. compaq didnot enable the tapping option for the touchpad. so u have to just got t0 control panel--otherhardware---mouse----device settings---settings--enable the tapping option and u will be on the go like any other notebooks. the processor is also as fast as pentium.on the other side this notebook didnot have the wireless card. but no complaints as u can buy it for not more than 30 bucks.hope this helps... ...
