Compaq used to be pretty bad - we had Compaq laptops at GTEI - but they got a lot better. Now that HP owns them, they're really just the 'consumer' HP product line. The two laptops are internally identical from what I can tell - same board, etc.

I was kind of leaning toward the Compaq bwcause it seems to have that shiny Ti/AlBook look. And I think the Compaq is a tiny bit cheaper - they are offering a special discount on a second battery, 50% off... Decisions...

Both HP and Compaq are on my sh*t list. HP for misleading me about a laptop purchase; salesgeek swore six ways to the sun that it was Linux compatible-- and acted annoyed and put upon when I came back to return it, pointing out that not being able to run X qualified as "not Linux compatible." At least they did finally take it back.

Compaq in general for end-of-lifing a desktop I had just freakin' bought, with one of Intel's ill-advised forays into the multimedia market in the soundcard slot.
