Excerpt: Denne ultra mobile netbook er udstyret med en imponerende 8,9-tommer skærm, en rummelig og store tastatur, en fuld størrelse bærbar harddisk, og masser af andre imponerende funktioner. Lad os tage et nærmere kig på Mini-note for at finde ud af, om det er en god notebook.
Conclusion: The HP Mini-Note is not quite an Eee PC killer, but it's a super-sleek ultra-mobile PC that will sell out as quickly as the Eee PC did.
Pros: Apple-like design. Comfortable keyboard. Spacious and sexy screen design. ExpressCard slot for 3G. SD slot. More than one USB port. Wide selection of operating systems. 2GB RAM. Wide choice of mass-storage options. Extended batteries available. Very travel-friendly.
Cons: Runs uncomfortably warm with the 7,200-rpm hard drive. Mouse buttons are awkwardly positioned.
Summary: The HP 2133 is an interesting computer. Its superior construction will attract those who are willing to pay a bit more to get good quality materials and design, while staying in a *relatively* low price range (netbooks became famous for their $300 price).
Conclusion: One final point for HP: Put a decent processor in this (anyone for Atom?) – and this will be the best sub-notebook on the planet. End of argument. Oh and if you fancy sending me an XP version feel free – preferably one I can “lose”!
Excerpt: It’s been less than a year since Asus first sprinkled its Eee PCs with magical miniaturizing dust, yet these low-cost, diminutive laptops have already taken off like an F/A-18 catapulted from an aircraft carrier.
Pros: One of the most comfortable keyboards we’veused on any mini-notebook. Sleek and solid build makes other minisseems like flimsy toys. Grown up hard drive means you’ll have 120- and160-GBs at your disposal. Beautiful, scratch resistant 8.9-inch screen.
Cons: Feeble Via processor doesn’t do the job — atleast with Vista. Tiny trackpad and awkwardly placed left and rightbuttons makes navigating difficult.
Excerpt: HP 2133 Mini-note Linux Edition PC Manufacturer: HP UK Price (as reviewed): £354.99 (inc. Delivery) US Price (as reviewed): $749.99 (inc. Delivery) Netbooks are, ironically, becoming quite big business.
Summary: I'm pretty torn over the Mini-Note. There are a lot of things about this little notebook that really turn me off, including its highly reflective screen coating that all but demands running the display at full brightness, which of course shortens battery life.
Summary: The 2133 Mini-Note is extremely desirable. It looks fantastic, and the keyboard is the best in its class, but it lets itself down in too many areas. It's too slow, the screen is too reflective to be used outdoors and it's slightly too expensive
Pros: Gorgeous looks; fantastic keyboard; good connectivity.
Cons: Slow performance; screen is too reflective to use outdoors.
Conclusion: So should you buy an HP Mini now, or wait for a probably improved version? That depends. The Eee still has its picture in the dictionary under cute , but the 2133 should be listed under style or glamour . You won't see a more chic handheld this year.
