I used to enjoy working on these machines, they were like the rolls royce of the computer world. However, I had to repair a relatively new compaq today and I could have been knocked over with a feather when I opened the case. The build quality was worse than that of a 'time' computer and it was so cramped I ended up with cuts all over my hands from the badly manufactured case. There was more room for manouvre in doing a 3 point turn with an articulated lorry in my garden shed. The components looked cheap and nasty too. Has compaq decided to let someone else produce their machines?
