Summary: This netbook is everything you need in a netbook. Easy to type on keyboard. nice screen and battery life. All components are quality made. The only problem I have noticed is a line developed on the screen due to it rubbing on the keyboard. Other than that, this is great.
Summary: I was looking forward to the netbook experience. My biggest fear was that my big hands wouldn't be able to navigate the keyboard. That turned out not to be the problem. So what IS the problem? This pc is pathetically slow, it locks up frequently. I might have only 3 tabs open in Firefox and the stupid thing stops working. If it can't run a browser then what good is it? Using the Windows programs isn't much better.
Summary: Finding anything on this specific Hewlett Packard HP Mini 110-1033CL was a challenge. My wife just bought one for my Grandson from COSTCO and it appears to have more features than were available in the past. For one, it has a 160GB SATA hard drive, and for another the standard battery is a 6 cell which lasts way longer than the smaller 3 cell. I haven't had much time to work with this machine but the display is fairly bright and the keyboard easy to use.
The portability is addictive. Netbook goes everywhere.

Summary: It is hard to believe that HP and other netbook makers packed so many features into such a small package. This HP netbook is a little bigger than the average DVD case. It is TINY...and slim too. At 2lbs and some change, you can carry this thing all day long and not even notice the weight. The features in the 1033CL match up with other netbooks on the market. The hard drive is a bit smaller than average - 60GB v/s 120GB.
Summary: In addition to the HP, I have an Asus eee, which runs Linux and has a keyboard that's just a little too small for sustained typing. The HP Mini 1033CL has a very nice keyboard and good screen resolution. I added an external optical drive and loaded MS Office with no problem. However, for whatever reason, HP saw fit not to include a VGA port.
Summary: I love this laptop! it's so miniature and light-weight. I just toss it in my back pack and off I go. I also have a wireless air card which I got from AT&T, so I had get 24-7 internet anywhere. There's also many wifi hotspots nowdays to take advantage of free internet. I'm going to Japan in a couple months. I plan to put the laptop in hibernate mode, and when I need to look up a restaurant, or places to go, or translate something, I'll have the resource with me.
