Summary: I bought my HP Netbook about 1 yr ago. I performed sluggishly from the start but i accepted that fact as i was accustomed to a Toshiba Laptop with much more power. Since i was only using the HP for travel purposes and just for surfing the internet (i would bring it with me in the car)...it served its purpose. But, after 1 yr, the thing went bad and the Video Card went dead. I called HP and was told i am SOL. I now have a Ghosted Screen that no one can fix..
Summary: I bought this unit after reading all the great things from the reviews. upon receiving of this unit, it looks great, and works fine for the first month and half.... then the unit begins to slow down, and finally reached it's untimely death. reloaded the os four times, but it keep having the same problems. I finally formated the hard drive and start from scartch.... hp customer service were no help at all, all they can tell me is to sent the unit back for repair......
Summary: After install Vista business with the DVD shipped together, there are no default drivers to connect to the network and to display in the claimed resolution. Took me one day to get it work by downloading the drivers from the web, and upgrade the OS to the latest patches. 1024x576 resolution is also a problem for some software --- It is not with enough width. When installing or running some software, the 'OK' and 'Cancel' buttons are 'below' the viewable screen.
Summary: I wanted a 2140 high-rez for a long time and finally bought one just before it was discontinued by HP. I was soooo excited to get it as it is a sexy and slick looking little machine. I wanted to like this machine so bad, but the 2140 has serious connection issues, in terms of WI-FI, and does not connect to many different signals and routers. You can't just take it to a coffee shop, because there is at least a 50% chance it won't work with their router.
Excerpt: I bought a hp mini-note about a year ago, at first I was really excited as I already have a computer but this was just so cute and small. But then it all changed when I turned it on, everything is in different places, I can't open certain files and its just a mess! I actually bought it for my personal training clients, something to keep there data on. But the screen resolution wont let you open alot of spreadsheets and so on.
