HP Mini 210 Review
Laptop Mag reviewed the HP Mini 210 and had the following to say about it:
Roomy keyboard, Clean design, Large touchpad, Good HD video playback, Strong software bundle
Bottom gets hot, Slow boot time, Shorter battery life than other netbooks, Broadcom chip doesn’t improve Flash playback (yet), Below-average performance
Bottom Line continued after the break
They said that the HP Mini 210 offered one of the best keyboards in it's class along with an HD screen at a reasonable price (Sony Vaio W also offers an HD screen). If you don’t need HD capabilities, for $85 less you can get an ASUS Eee PC 1001P, which also has an excellent keyboard, performs marginally better, and lasts about 2 hours longer on battery. In the $380ish price range they prefer the Toshiba Mini NB305 because of its better ergonomics and cooler running temperatures. The Toshiba NB305 also happens to be what I named as the best netbook of CES. I'll add that the HP Mini 210 comes in a TON of different configurations so be sure to browse our netbook comparison database to sort through the various models and prices.
Quick Product Specs:
Intel Atom N450 1.66 GHz Processor, 1 GB RAM, 250 GB Hard Drive, Windows 7 Starter see full specs
Note: I'll update this review with more of my own impressions if HP sends me out a Mini 210, but they're notorious for never having enough demo models to send out.
