I solved the comparison problem by installing a HP V 710 MB into a Compaq P
5260 that had a board failure. It's kinda cool seeing the Compaq monitor
come up with the HP logo at startup, especially since both machines are
pre-merger.

You do know that they are the same company, right?

Manufacturing wise, I've found that the Compaq's are better than the HP's,
but that was pre merger. I don't know if their manfacturing has been
alagamated as well by now. I haven't been keeping as interested as I was

at
one point in Compaq.

I know that Compaqs and HPs are pretty much the same. Saw a Compaq 2172
that is comaprable to the HP 4502. In the specs I noticed that the HP

had
a
soundblaster 16 sound card and it wasn't there in the Compaq. Is it in

the
Compaq or not. One would think that it is, but.....
