Compaq Presario CQ57-319QM for $198 – Walmart’s 2011 Black Friday Laptop Door-Buster

The Walmart 2011 Black Friday laptop door-buster has been revealed. It’s the Compaq Presario CQ57-319QM (#CQ57-319M in the BF ad) by HP, priced at only $198.

Walmart’s Black Friday ad contains this full size laptop with a 15.6-inch display, but its processor is more suitable for netbooks. The CPU is the low-power AMD Fusion C-50 dual-core at 1GHz with the Radeon HD 6250 graphics and 1080p HD video decoding capability. For comparison the Intel Atom N570 dual-core netbook processor is faster in various benchmarks than the C-50 when it comes to CPU performance, but the C-50 has a better GPU. The Compaq Presario CQ57-319WM includes 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, built-in webcam, 2-in-1 card reader, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

    • Definately suitable. This computer will support any online surfing and flash games, but that’s about it with its 1ghz processor and 2 gigs of ram. Bought mine last night for my 13 year old brother. He will need a beefier machine within three years, but to fit his needs now, its perfect.
