You just reminded me about the most painful moment in my life, which came when they remove the nerve

Gateway's New Notebooks Come with Multi-touch, 8-hour Batteries and Windows 7

The EC58 and EC54 are 15.6 inch laptops with high definition, LED-backlit screens. They run Pentium Dual Core SU4100 series CPUs, offering very low power consumption. They are, however, running an Intel integrated graphics solution. The units will have 4GB of DDR3 RAM loaded as well. The EC14 has a smaller 11.6 inch HD display, LED-backlit, and weighs in at a bit over 3 pounds. Otherwise, the specs are very similar. The EC58/54 will start at $649.99 and the EC14 will go for $549.99.

can someone give me an idea about this.

P.S : Im planing to get a Compaq CQ60-404CA
HP/Compaq makes it easier than you think. There is a folder in the C drive containing almost all of your preinstalled goodies. Burn that folder to a DVD, and you have your apps. Reinstalling them is a trial and error process, because some of the appslication folders aren't named according to what they are, but are in labeled with an alpha-numeric "code."
I wish I could tell you the name of the folder, but I can't remember anymore. I got rid of my Compaq laptop (Vista Home Premium preinstalled) last year. I hope this helps you, and that they haven't changed the way they did things in '07 when I bought my last Compaq laptop.

You'll also find that their support site and options outweigh anything some other companies offer. I run HP printers here and locate drivers from their support section for various models far easier at times then with other brands.
