Summary: Greetings All Probably the best looking netbook around with a superb keyboard. How ever it's significantly slower than my Asus eeePC 701SD with 2Gb ram and 32Gb ssd. It's screen is a little too reflective for my liking but has much higher res. than the average net book and to me me that's it's only advantage. I'm using it with an Avermedia DVB T TV card and recording TV for travel I'll continue to use the eeePc 701 PC it's smaller and lighter. Pretty but "useless".
Summary: Not an iPad or tablet, but a sleek and quick miniature computer. Solid as a rock with an excellent display. Drop it on the floor, no harm done. Heavier than a tablet, but a pound is meaningless to me. I run Win7 in mine.
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.
Summary: First, I want to forewarn you, this is a confusing review. Do I like the HP2133 or not? Let's talk about the price that I purchased it for: $299.99 (+$27.69 S&H; I live in Alaska. Your S&H may be less) from TigerDirect. Why does the title say, "WAS amazing?" The day after I purchased this, TigerDirect took that sale price off their website and the Amazon market. I don't think you can get a NEW one from TigerDirect at ANY price. There is a refurb. for $279...
Excerpt: Ever since the ASUS Eee PC, I believe huge computer markets like HP would want to have a fair share of the mini pie too. The HP Mini-Note PC, in it’s really sleek looking black glossy finish on the cover, metallic finishing on the inside.
Summary: It's not very fast but it gets the job done. I use it mainly to grab pictures as shot with my Canon 5D and 5D MK2 when in the field. It has built-in wireless so I can connect in my hotel for emailing and internet. Plenty of storage for even a 2 or 3 day shooting assignment. I loaded the Canon software and Gimp for some quick image adjusting. It has plenty of connectivity and comes with Windows XP so no Vista mysteries.
