I am inheriting a COMPAQ computer from around 1994-1998. from my g'ma's friend. I won't be receiving it until this Friday, nor have I seen it, over the phone my G'ma told me that the model name was a Profina, but I looked it up online and it did not give me any information. Our phone company is shabby and we are in the country so maybe I heard her wrong. Is there any old Compaq model that happens to sound like the word Profina?

Thanks for the assistance, I really appreciate it! :)

Prolinea maybe or Proliant, although Proliant is a sever model. That's not the full model name though, just the model range. It has quite a few different models.

This is an example of the full model number:

There is also the Presario but that does not sound close to what you think it is.

Either case, that computer is next to useless, there won't be many updates for it, it won't run anything new and if you want to do anything online, because it is too slow for XP or newer, many web sites won't work properly. Not to mention the security issues you will have. Unless you have some old games you want to play on it, you are better off selling it to someone that does want it for old games.

Hmm... Well my grandma said that is a professional laptop system, and about the useless-ness, I want it for something to work on and as a vintage "show-off" computer. But either way, thanks for the response, I can see it on Friday to confirm. :)
