Compaq Presario V2410 Turion 64 laptop is the only game in town for a 14″ WXGA display and 64-bit processing. It’s a slim laptop with killer looks, but is it lacking where it counts?

Hewlett Packard is one of the world’s biggest laptop manufacturers offering a wide range of products that address essentially every mobile need in the market. The Presario V2000 Turion 64 laptop series from HP’s Compaq brand is the last piece of the puzzle as it fits nicely between cheaper Celeron-M offerings, and more expensive Centrino products. Today we’re looking at the Presario V2410 laptop which is Compaq’s latest consumer model with the AMD CPU.

If you’re in the market for a 14″ laptop using a Turion 64 processor, the pickings are pretty meager. In fact, PriceGrabber only reports a single manufacturer of 14″ Turion laptops and that is Compaq. Of those listed, the Presario V2410 is the most current model.
