HP Mini 1103

 

The HP Mini 1103 is a netbook that may not have an impressive list of components, but the low price should more than make up for it.

Nice $300 price tag. Sturdy plastic chassis. Spill-resistant keyboard. 7-hour battery life

Tiny trackpad. Squeaky keyboard. Dinky single-core processor

HP Mini 1103

 

The business-oriented HP Mini 1103 netbook is good-looking and solidly designed, and it has great battery life. Two years ago it would've earned high praise. Today it reminds us how inadequate Atom-based netbooks are for all but the most basic...

Bluetooth ; Affordable ; Good battery life

Poor performer out of the box

This affordable, good-looking netbook has great battery life but is a slothful performer without software tweaks.

HP Mini 1103 Review

 

The HP Mini 1103 is one of the latest business class netbooks on the market to offer extreme portability and battery life for an extremely low price. Is this 10-inch netbook worth $300 from your company's coffers, or should your IT manager spend a...

HP Mini 1103 Review

 

For $299, the HP Mini 1103 delivers a solid keyboard, long battery life and a good software bundle for students. This netbook holds its own against the ASUS Eee PC 1001P, which beats the HP in the style department but lags slightly behind in most...

Long battery life, Above-average audio quality, Roomy keyboard, Productivity software included, Very affordable

Low Wi-Fi throughput from longer distances, No configuration options for consumers

This low-cost netbook's long battery life and solid software bundle help reduce the sting of its so-so performance. It's a good choice for budget-minded consumers and businesspeople who need a road-companion PC.

Excellent battery life, Aggressively priced, Sturdy keyboard

Underwhelming performance, Flat audio, Glossy top half collects fingerprints

HP Mini 1103

 

I am quite pleased with my new netbook, the first I ever had. It is easy to carry around and to work on in a pinch, and it does the job I want it to do relatively fast. I have no problem starting up browsers and multitasking as long as the programs...

Good battery life. Adequate performance for light use. Pleasant keyboard

The lid's glossy plastic is so good at retaining fingerprints it could be used in forensic science. The touchpad is wide enough but not tall enough

HP Mini 1103

 

It would be a nice little machine if you could actually use it, but it is NOT worth the aggravation...do not buy it.

It is light weight with good battery life. Looks attractive

SLOW - very SLOW. Do not buy this netbook unless you do not mind spending 5 minutes just opening your browser
