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.
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.
Summary: The $384 HP Mini 210 combines an attractive netbook chassis with one of the best keyboards in its class, and it offers an HD screen and high-def video playback at a reasonable price. If you don’t need HD capabilities, for $85 less you can get an ASUS Eee PC 1001P, which also boasts an excellent keyboard, performs slightly better, and lasts almost 2 hours longer.
Pros: Roomy responsive keyboard, Clean design, Large touchpad, Good HD video playback, Strong software bundle,
Cons: Bottom gets hot, Slow boot time, Shorter battery life than competition, Broadcom chip doesnt yet improve Flash playback, Below-average performance,
Summary: With the mini NB205-N310, Toshiba proved that it could build one of the best netbooks on the market, and its low-cost cousin is also compelling. Though the $349 NB205-N210 is missing a few of the premium features, such as a more elegant lid and island style keyboard, it still manages to run for more than 9.5 hours and perform up to netbook standards. Whether you opt for the N210 or the more expensive N310 depends on what you are willing to spend.
Pros: 9.5 hours of battery life, Comfortable keyboard and large touchpad, Hard drive protection, USB port charges device when system is off,
Cons: Lid attracts fingerprints, Large display bezel,
