HP's Mini 5101 is another stylish netbook let down by poor battery life
14 November 2010
Summary: Sleek and professional, the Hp Mini 5101 is another attractively pitched netbook that can't shake its very poor battery life. When will manufactuers learn that battery life is all-important to netbook success?
Conclusion: First off, the HP Mini 5101 is expensive - very expensive in the specification we tested. While the impressive build quality and conservative design will help it to appeal more to corporate buyers, there's no getting away from the fact that it's pricier than some of the CULV laptops that are currently appearing on the market - with Acer's excellent Aspire 1810T a prime example.
