Review HP Compaq Mini 701eg Netbook


Hoidy-Toidy. If you are familiar with the term "netbook&quo

Successful design; Extremely mobile case with low weight; Interesting connection options; Easy-to-use keyboard; Thoroughly good sound payback

Display very susceptible to signs of use; Small opening angle of the display; Mirrored display limits outdoor use; Omnipresent fan; modest battery life

A powerful battery, perhaps a version with integrated UMTS. In no case a mirror for fixing your hair, which you always have with the Mini 701eg.

HP Compaq Mini 700 Review


In this review, we take a detailed look at HP's Compaq Mini 700. It is an elegant netbook from the first look and we check its screen, graphics, processor, ram, hard disk, keyboard and touchpad.

HP Compaq Mini 700 - 10.2in Netbook


An Intel Atom based netbook from HP is long overdue, so does the Mini 700 deliver on the expectation? Andy finds out.

HP Compaq Mini 700


HP's first netbook, the 2133 Mini-Note, was a cruel disappointment. Its gorgeous chassis, fantastic screen and neat keyboard were let down by a misjudged combination of a sluggish VIA C7M processor and the use of Windows Vista and SUSE's Linux Enterprise.

It's a pleasure to use and it's gorgeous, but those looks do come at a cost in other important areas
