Externally, the V4000 Compaq notebook is a typical laptop or even a desktop-replacement class device, made in the traditional HP design.

On the other side, the inner stuff of the V4000 model explains its positioning as a powerful and full featured notebook.
This Compaq notebook has an Intel Pentium M as the central processor unit with the clock speed at level of 1.86 GHz; naturally, the processor features the most innovative Centrino Mobile Technology from Intel. The V4000 model has five hundred and twelve MB as the standard DDR memory volume with the ability to upgrade it up to two GB. The volume of the internal hard drive is hundred GB. Even these initial characteristics of the Presario V4000 Compaq notebook let us say that it is not a typical laptop, however, a real competitor for many of the highly-efficient desktop personal computers.

The notebook is equipped with a DVD (+/-R and +/-RW) writer, supporting Double Layer technology, allowing to double the amount of data, written on the standard four GB DVD optical disk.

Finally, the software applications, preinstalled in the notebook, are also among the strong points of the V4000 model. The notebook comes with the Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and Microsoft Works 8.0 (simplified analogue of the MS Office). The MS Internet Explorer and Outlook Express, as well as the Media Player are also among the preinstalled programs.
