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...

Clean design ; Easy to upgrade ; Cheap

Weak performance ; Low-res screen ; Cramped keyboard

HP Mini 1103 review

 

HP's Netbooks have traditionally come in two versions: consumer 10-inch models such as the Mini 210 , and pro-level Netbooks such as the Mini 5103 . The $299 Mini 1103 is both and neither. An affordable business/education-targeted Netbook, it has a...

Budget-priced Netbook with solid construction; excellent battery life; comfortable keyboard.

Lacks HDMI; single-core Atom CPU; narrow touch pad; limited customization; ultimately, still a plain old single-core Netbook.

If you're looking for a budget-level Netbook with a long battery life, the HP Mini 1103 offers a very affordable package compared with other HP Netbooks. Just be forewarned: there isn't anything here you haven't seen before.

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

HP Mini 1103 Review and Ratings

 

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

On the machine, HP offers an industry-standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty, backed by 24/7 toll-free tech support, one-hour-response e-mail assistance, and online chat-based help—a generous array, especially for the low price. Extended HP Total...
