Engadget Reviews the HP Mini 210 HD

"But what about the $425 HD model? As we concluded with the Dell Mini 10, spending the extra money for the Broadcom is pretty hit or miss at the moment. Yes, Flash 10.1 Beta 3 allows for better Flash and Flash HD playback, but right now it's flaky at best. Whether that's worth the extra cash is up to you, but if you're looking for a netbook that can undoubtedly stream HD Flash content out of the box you're best looking at an NVIDIA Ion-powered system like the HP Mini 311, or better yet waiting for an Ion 2 system that uses NVIDIA's new Optimus technology and promises better battery life than the first generation."

If you must have HD on your netbook, looks like you will have to wait a bit longer. The Broadcom chip brings some improvements, but it is still not the user experience those that are demanding HD are expecting. I'm curious how many users are demanding HD though? I mean sure, it is nice to have, but a netbook is not my primary entertainment device.
