The r3000 has been seen in many CPU speeds and options, but I now own one and it's a desktop replacement so make sure you want the larger unit.
I need a relatively inexpensive (around $1000) laptop that will be used mainly for internet/email and Microsoft Office applications. I don't need anything fancy but I would like it to be fairly fast. I am looking at the HP z5000t and the Compaq r3000t. Is there any difference between these two machines. I've read that the only main difference is the speakers. Is this really the only factor that I should consider? I am also curious about how these two models stack up to the HPzv5000z and the Compaq r3000z. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
