HP Mini 5101

PC Magazine
9 September 2010
  • Conclusion: The HP Mini 5101 is much improved version over HP's previous netbooks, but you'll have to pay extra for many of its fringe benefits—if they become available.
  • Pros: Very attractive metallic chassis. 95-percent keyboard is right up there with those on the top netbooks. Mouse buttons are quiet. Bevy of options, including an "HD" resolution, 3G, SSDs and 7,200 rpm HDDs. Good performance scores. 802.11n wireless capability.
  • Cons: Options can bring up the cost significantly and aren't available for purchase yet.

HP Mini 5101 Review

Digitaltrends
19 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Professionals, rejoice: We have a netbook you can bring to your next board meeting without looking like you just learned that Windsor knot in your tie. At $399, it holds barely any premium over similarly-equipped models from companies like Asus and MSI, and we think the superior build of this particular machine easily justifies it for the right type of user.
  • Pros: Durable and attractive matte black finish, Sturdy magnesium chassis, Drop protection and other business add-ons, Respectable performance, Superior battery life (with optional six-cell battery), Reasonably priced
  • Cons: Clammy fingers stick on glossy trackpad, Average keyboard

Review HP Mini 5101 Netbook

Notebookcheck
23 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Advocates of compact and low-priced netbooks had to wait for a long time for an outdoor suitable device with a good resolution . The HP Mini 5101 is one of the first models that have a WSVGA screen with an HD resolution of 1366x768 pixels in a 10.2 inch format, and this with an eye-friendly, matt display surface . Because the screen brightness is also alright, there shouldn't be any restrictions as to mobility.
  • Pros: Robust case, Good image quality with VGA port, Typing-eager keyboard, Matt display with a high resolution, Useable sound rendering, That the thought of mobility is finally also supported in consideration of the display. Good brightness, working suitable resolution and a matt display surface fit for outdoor use. The HP Mini 5101 makes that what should be standard in netbooks to an exceptional talent.
  • Cons: No digital image output/docking option, Merely 12 month warranty ex-factory, Touchpad needs getting used to, Permanently existent fan, A bit more business in the "business netbook". For instance, a docking port, an ExpressCard slot or even extensive security features would have been appropriate. Otherwise: A software update for fan control

HP Mini 5101 (FM978UT)

LAPTOP Magazine
23 July 2009
  • Summary: In the price-competitive world of netbooks, $425 is a lot to pay for a system whose battery life falls an hour and a half short of those that cost $75 less. However, in the Mini 5101, HP gets a lot of things right: its business-rugged design makes this netbook more durable than consumer-focused systems, and its performance is better than the majority of the netbooks on the market. It also has convenient security tools.
  • Pros: Stylish durable design, Comfortable keyboard, Excellent performance, Good audio,
  • Cons: Touchpad has too much friction,

  • Summary: HP's biz-minded Mini 5101 is a successor to the Mini 2140 (one of our all-time favourite netbooks). It looks and feels great, but for a premium-price netbook, we expect to get more features, not fewer.
  • Pros: Revamped version of one of our favourite netbooks, Excellent keyboard and touch pad, Sturdy and durable, Includes accelerometer, Optional higher-resolution display
  • Cons: Loses its ExpressCard slot, Standard netbook components at a premium price

  • Conclusion: Os simpatizantes e defensores de netbooks compactos e de baixo custo tiveram que esperar um longo tempo por um dispositivo adequado para exteriores com uma boa resolução. O HP Mini 5101 é um dos primeiros modelos que possui uma tela WSVGA com uma resolução HD de 1366x768 pixels em um formato de 10,2 polegadas, e isto com uma superfície de tela mate. Devido a que o brilho da tela também é bom, não deveria haver nenhuma restrição para a mobilidade.
