Funnily enough I am sitting in the garden at the moment (catching the last of the sun) working on a Compaq Evo N1015v with my wireless network card plugged in.
It is a very good machine for the price and the fact that it has got Windows XP Pro installed on it is a bonus. The battery life is fantastic (especially when sitting in the garden!), the screen is nice and clear, and the whole machine is well built.
I have had no problems with the machine and I would recommend it to anyone.
By the way, the machine I have got is:-
Compaq Evo Notebook N1015v
AMD Athlon XP 2000+
10/100 LAN & 56k Modem
