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.
