The HP Mini 110: A Refined Netbook

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 11:00 AM

This is an review video of the HP Mini 110 XP Edition [Affiliate], a follow-up video to my unboxing and first impressions video. This netbook is a second-generation unit, following on the heels of the HP Mini 1000 released in 2008. The HP Mini 110 that I'm looking at features a 1.6 Ghz Atom N270 processor, 1 GB of DDR2 RAM (easily upgradeable to 2 GB), a 160 GB 5400 RPM hard drive, integrated 802.11b/g WiFI, and a 10.1 inch LED Anti-glare (matte) 16:9 aspect-ratio wide screen at 1024 x 576 resolution, driven by an Intel GMA950 graphics processor. It's running Windows XP SP3.

There's a webcam of unknown resolution (likely VGA), and the finish is "Black Swirl". "White Swirl" and "Pink Swirl" are also available. There is no CD/DVD drive, and the version I'm looking at has a 3 cell battery. Read more...

HP Mini 110 Unboxing and First Impressions Video

Thank You UPS! It's Netbook/Laptop Day

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Talk" @ 02:30 PM

On top we have the HP Mini 110, and on the bottom we have a Dell Adamo - both delivered by UPS today. I think I'm more excited about the HP Mini 110 (known as the Mini 1100 in Canada) to be honest, because I'm a big fan of the HP Mini 1000 and this is supposed to be a refind version of that. The Dell Adamo is going to look great, but given the hardware specs it has, I'm not sure how well it's going to perform. I guess we'll see!

HP Mini 110 Reviewed

"Assuming the 6-cell battery on the Mini 110 gets close to the 6-hour runtime claim, the Mini 110 will be one of the better netbook bargains at $369. We’re still not fans of the vertical touchpad buttons, but HP has made several welcome improvements while still delivering one of the best netbook keyboards around. It's up to you to decide if the Mini 110's slightly heavier and bulkier design--and less striking display--is worth having a VGA port, an extra USB port, and a cooler-running system."

Hot on the heels of the product announcement, LaptopMag has a review. It looks like they have eliminated a few of the fancier features (like edge-to-edge glass) but have developed an overall better product.


The Latest Netbooks from HP

"The new Mini models are small enough to slip into most purses, backpacks or briefcases, starting at 2.33 pounds and measuring just over 1-inch thick.(1) With a 10.1-inch diagonal standard or optional high-definition LED widescreen display, a keyboard that is 92 percent the size of a standard notebook PC keyboard, and a built-in webcam and microphone, the new HP Minis are designed for consumers and business professionals who surf the web, check email, listen to music and need access to friends, family, coworkers or information while on the go."

I really like the styling of the recent HP netbooks. This looks like a nice update to the HP Mini 1000. If you are interested I'd suggest waiting a month or two so the optional Broadcom Crystal HD Enhanced Video Accelerator will be available that should provide for 1080p video.
