The Compaq Presario CM2130 was a model from the Compaq Presario 700 series of notebooks. Notebooks are particularly small laptops, offering basic systems, which are good for using on the move. The company Compaq was acquired by HP in 2001.
The Compaq CM2130 used an AMD Mobile Duron Processor. This single-core processor offered good speed for a notebook at the time. It has a speed of 900 megahertz and a 64 kilabyte L2 cache, which make a temporary copy of small amounts of data to speed up data recall. The Compaq CM2130 included 256 megabytes of SDRAM (Synced DRAM.)
The Compaq CM2130 had a 20 gigabyte hard drive. This is small, but notebooks don't place emphasis on storage capacity. The hard drive is large enough to fit an operating system and programs, with limited memory left free for file storage.
The Compaq CM2130 used integrated graphics and had just a 16 megabyte video memory, which was adequate for basic tasks but would have offered stilted video playback. The video memory could be manually altered from the BIOS settings to be up to 32 megabytes for better video performance.
The Compaq CM 2130, weighing 2.9 Kilogram, measured 12.4 inches wide, 10.6 inches deep, and 1.64 inches in height, when closed. This is the typical small size and lightweight format for a notebook.
