This HP mini laptop is built for travel.

  • Summary: It is bit heavier than I thought, but not as heavy as my 15.4" Laptop (Acer, approx. 7.5 lbs.) It is definitely durable for travel. It doesn't have a CD nor DVD drive but can be hooked to a keyboard, printer or another screen. Although it is only 8.9", it still has 3 USB slots like any other laptop. I prefer flashdrives/thumbnails, esp. when on-the-go. I like how you can change the font sizes on any webpage or document.

Delightful machine crammed with goods

  • Summary: This computer is now the first one I reach for when I want to do anything on a computer--it's my go-to mega-gadget. I've packed up my first HP. I bought both computers myself (three years apart) after months of research and drooling over specs, but the Mini-note is about 6 times the computer in a third of the occupied space. The Mini-note is definitely more cost-effective a purchase than the Pavillion was.
  • Pros: Adequate Storage, Comfortable Keyboard, Compact, Fast, Good Battery Life, Lightweight
  • Cons: Boot-up takes its time, Gets really hot, Multi-task freezelag, XP to Vista Confusing

Not reliable

Don, J&R

  • Summary: I bought this computer from JR not that long ago and after a few months it died, the system board had to be replaced. After another couple of months the same problem again - dead, computer would not start. Warranty tech explained that to get the computer replaced it has to be warranty serviced 3 times! The Mini Note could have been a wonderful machine I'm sure, but hello?! Reliability is a big issue here. Machine runs hot, has some kind of tech design problems.
  • Pros: Adequate Storage, Comfortable Keyboard, Compact, Good Battery Life
  • Cons: Freezes Up, Slow

The worst computer I've ever bought

Qahtan, J&R
21 January 2009
  • Summary: Really slow processor, and fast to be too HOT. One day, 7 months after purchasing this thing, I was checking my email and the screen became black and I couldn't restart it anymore. I send it to HP to fix it. After they fixed it, they lost my battery and didn't send me a replacement battery until now! there wasn't any customer support. The only one good feature I liked it about this little thing is the size.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Long Battery Life
  • Cons: Freezes Up, Too Hot

Professor's delight

DavidsDarling, B&H Photo
5 January 2009
  • Summary: I use the HP mini to present PowerPoint presentations in large lecture classes. We upgraded the memory to 2G and installed Microsoft Home Office... for PowerPoint and Excel, which I need for grading quizzes administered with a clicker system in class. It is NOT fast.... but it does the job... the weight is great. The model I bought does not include an optical drive, but I can transfer video clips easily enough on a flash drive or from a USB optical drive.

Useful and handy

Andresz, B&H Photo
29 December 2008
  • Summary: It is nice that this can handle Vista, although I am thinking about RAM extention to give it some more boost. Build quality is better that the other netbooks on the market, there are even aluminium up and down covers. Nice feature is the full size buttons keyboard. I use it mainly as internet radio (the build in speakers are doing quite a nice job), it is so handy and handsome that it does match the bedroom table.
  • Pros: Comfortable Keyboard, Lightweight, Quality Display
  • Cons: Short Battery Life, Too Loud
