Hp Mini 1000's Netbook Review - UltraPortable Laptop!

11 July 2009
Excerpt: I love the HP Mini 1000's series. HP cut no corners when they designed this laptop, giving it a sleek look and superior performance. At $300 (or $400 for the model I have) I feel that it's a steal.
Pros: Great, nearly full sized keyboard, Fast, intuitive, feels like a real laptop, Price! $300 for basic features
Cons: The mouse buttons need to be moved to be together, the webcam built in is very poor when the room isn't brightly lit (worse so than other built in webcams), The charging cable should be shorter to make it even more portable

Incredibly slow and unresponsive machine...not worth the money

Summary: I was in search of a laptop but didn't have much money, so I looked into getting a netbook. All I needed was a machine to do word processing and surf the internet, so my expectations were pretty low. This machine doesn't even do that effectively..

Summary: My general use is specifically the Windows Media Player. As a result it serves me well. The case and monitor are in good condition as described. Due to it's age the AC adapter port has worn causing the adapter to easily fall out. A small sacrifice.
