Summary: I'm honestly surprised there is so little info on this netbook, it seems like very few people own one. Nevertheless, it is a great netbook and only a little more expensive than the normal fair.
Received Laptop with a missing key, not cleaned and full of pornographic contents!!!
9 May 2011
Summary: I bought an used laptop from EZCORP and the product they sent me missed not just a directional key but wasn't restored to factory defaults at all, and was literally full of very shocking pornographic contents on the former administrator session!!!! It is just unacceptable from a such company!! Unfortunately EZCORP refuses to take the problem seriously and they even said that their double-check did not find any defaults in the cleaning process! It's a shame!
Summary: I received the mini 5103 and it was what I expected. The only problem is that it would not recognize the battery ("no battery detected) and no matter what you do (update BIOS to 2013 version, uninstall ACPI, and every possible solution found in the web) it still does not recognize the battery.
Summary: I purchased an HP 5103 netbook a few weeks ago after my year-old ASUS netbook died. I tend to be rough with my laptops. I travel quite a bit and so my laptops get bumped a lot. I needed something sturdy. So far, the HP 5103 has held up great. As soon as I took the netbook out of the box, I could tell that this machine was built better than my ASUS. The netbook casing is an aluminum-magnesium alloy.
Summary: This Netbook is a perfect size to be carried around the whole day in my shoulder bag and used for 9 hours without me having to worry about it running out of battery like the regular size labtop that required charging every two hours of usage. The espresso color is just beautiful. The 250/2GB capability sealed the deal for me at this price.
Summary: I bought the first netbook from HP, the 2133 fully loaded, and it was a rocket (Vista Business, 1.6Ghz, 2Gb, and 7200rpm HDD), with this new business line model, I was looking for something equivalent, but didn't get a rocket this time. The boot time takes longer than my previous HP netbook, and the relation resolution/display size it's not good at all.
High quality construction resolution could be better
14 February 2011
Summary: I really liked everything about the way the computer was built and the way it looked. Speed was reasonable. The only thing I thought could of been better was the resolution. I realize this comes at a cost so I rate this a 4 out of 5.
