Summary: The HP Mini 210 might look futuristic, but beneath the shiny exterior lies a netbook that provides no more than ordinary performance. It also has its fair share of design flaws, including a badly laid-out trackpad and a truly baffling power port.
Cons: Terrible power port design; Irritating trackpad layout; Unimpressive battery life.
Excerpt: Достаточно одного взгляда на HP Mini 210 (полное модельное наименование — HP Mini 210-1100), чтобы заменить, что в нем применено немало нетрадиционных решений, которые позволяют выделить это устройство из обще-серой массы ему подобных.
HP Mini 210 Review: Fusion is Fast, but Atoms Last
9 May 2011
Excerpt: With all of the talk about tablets and smartphones it’s easy to forget just how popular netbooks are and remain. The days of absurd 800% market share growth numbers are over, but netbooks remain a part of the mobile computing market and are not likely to disappear any time soon.
Conclusion: The Mini 210 is a 10.1 incher with nice haptics and scores points by a good workmanship. An Atom N450 is built-in and, so, the CPU-performance is accordingly. But, a 7200 rpm hard drive is a surprise and pushes the total application performance a little. Nevertheless, the Mini 210 can not compete with a notebook. The Mini 210 belongs to the top in terms of actual battery life. During the WLAN test we recored 6:24 hours.
Pros: Best battery life, Good keyboard, Fast 7200 RPM hard drive, Low weight, Low temperature emissions, It's fully upgradeable. Even a Mini PCI Express (full sized) is available.
Cons: Twistable base unit, High-gloss TFT, Inaccurate Touchpad, Always active fan, An Atom netbook without constantly active fan. The competition shows how to do it.
Excerpt: We’ve been covering netbooks consistently this past month, and its about time we look at one of the bigger names in this clustered market, and that is HP. Their Mini series is almost genre defining for the realm of small ultraportable and efficient notebooks, in other words, netbooks. But every product has lots of substitutes, thus we keep the rigor up and check this Mini210 model (Pinetrail Platform) individually to see if it's worthy of anything. Here is the review.
