"The Mini 1000 I reviewed is an excellent choice and value for someone that understands the limitations of a netbook. It’s highly portable and its keyboard makes it much more useful than netbooks with smaller keys. The configuration in this review has a retail price of $464.99 and will provide the vast majority of consumers a solid portable web, email and productivity experience. Business professionals looking for an enterprise-class computer should avoid the Mini 1000, along with all current netbooks."
Notebooks.com puts the HP Mini 1000 through its paces, and finds a lot to like. From the touch-typable keyboard to the stylish looks, the Mini 1000 addresses many of the complaints of first generation netbooks. They do recognize that this netbook is targeted towards the consumer market. It definately sounds like netbooks have found a sweet spot in terms of size and usability which closely matches the ultraportable segment. Thankfuly, they're much cheaper! Now HP is looking to make Netbooks fashion aware. While their styling doesn't quite suit my tastes, I'm sure some people covet their dark copper look, or the soon to be released Vivienne Tam edition.
