Reviews – These are excerpts – Click on links to read full reviews
Pocket-lint.co.uk – February 2006 – It manages to combine a lightweight chassis with a great battery life and enough power to handle most tasks with ease
IT Reviews – October 2005 – The nc4200 is a great tool for the road warrior, if a little pricey, the only reservations being the lack of an optical drive and that none-too-bright screen.
LAPTOP Magazine – October 2005 – 4/5 – LAPTOP BEST BUY – The HP Compaq nc4200 has that one-two punch that all road warriors need: excellent battery life and a design that’s very light, but quite durable.
