HP Mini 1000 Mi Edition review

Liliputing
26 February 2009
  • Summary: There are a lot of things to like about the HP Mini 1000 Mi Edition. The keyboard is excellent, and the device is one of the thinnest and lightest machines you’ll find for less than $500. And I think HP has done a better job than any other company to date of releasing a netbook with a user friendly version of Linux for users who have never used Ubuntu or another Linux distribution before.

  • Conclusion: The Mini 1000 was already a solid netbook, but the addition of HP's custom Ubuntu build to the Mi edition only sweetens the deal.
  • Pros: Custom Ubuntu build is intuitive and efficient. Stylish design. Gorgeous glass screen. Lightweight. Speedy enough performance with Atom processor.
  • Cons: Mouse buttons are still awkwardly placed.

Review: HP Mini 1000 Netbook

  • Conclusion: I really like the HP Mini 1000 and I think for someone who is always on the go it would be a great companion device. The keyboard and screen are small, but that is what keeps this Netbook lite and easy to carry. I am giving the HP Mini 1000 my 5 star award, this is really a great Netbook, and with a little work it could be an excellent Netbook.

  • Conclusion: The Mini 1000 is a solid second act for HP that could teach other netbooks a thing or two about design. It could stand to learn a few things from its peers, as well.
  • Pros: Runs on the Intel Atom platform. Gorgeous, big (10-inch) glass screen. Best-looking design. Lighter than its rivals. WWAN, bigger battery, and excellent Ubuntu distro options later this year. Superior keyboard.
  • Cons: Mouse buttons are awkwardly placed. Slow-spinning hard drives. VGA-out requires a dongle.

HP Mini 1000 (Mi)

LAPTOP Magazine
5 February 2009
  • Summary: The HP Mini 1000 Mi Series has something that its XP counterpart does not: an innovative, accessible Linux interface that lets you do all the things you’d normally do with a netbook: surf the Web, check e-mail, write documents, and access your favorite photos, music, and video. Unfortunately, it has the same shortcomings as its Windows-based sibling: short battery life and sluggish performance, thanks to a slow 4,200-rpm hard drive.
  • Pros: Stylish compact design, Fun interface, Good selection of bundled apps, Spacious comfortable keyboard,
  • Cons: Short battery life, Awkwardly placed touch buttons, Sluggish and small hard drive, Only two USB ports,

Review: HP Mini 1000 netbook

Geek.com
29 January 2009
  • Excerpt: It wasn’t too long ago that if you wanted a small laptop you’d have to pay a premium for it. Thanks to the birth of the netbook, you can now go portable with a 10-inch or less screen, and not break the bank.

Review: HP Mini 1000 Netbook Earns Notebooks.com Editor’s Choice Award

Notebooks.com
10 December 2008
  • Excerpt: A lot of netbooks look and feel like toys, but HP’s blessed the Mini 1000 with design cues borrowed from its Pavilion notebooks, making it the best looking netbook to date. This Mini 1000 is an excellent choice for anyone that understands the limitations of a netbook, likes the idea of simplicity and favors style over having a couple of extra ports and plugs.

HP Mini 1000 review

Liliputing
8 December 2008
  • Summary: If size is your only concern, you should totally check out the HP Mini 1000. It’s small, light, and incredibly attractive when compared with similar netbooks like the Asus Eee PC 1000H. The HP netbook has a screen and keyboard that are at least as large as the Eee PC’s, but the Eee PC 1000H absolutely dwarfs the HP Mini 1000 in terms of size, as you can see in the pictures below.
