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 - 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 700EA N270


Ideal for someone who doesn't want to spend hours setting things up before they can start playing, just switch it on and off you go! Keyboard size is excellent for the size of the notepad, I now prefer using this to my full sized laptop

Power cable connection is a bit loose and does come out frequently, but fine if you don't what to move it about when it's charging.

HP Compaq Mini 700EA N270


Bought this for my 8 year old son and he's made up with it. I decided to get this one because I wanted a reputable name, Windows XP and the 10inch screen. The battery life is very good and Windows makes it easy and familiar to use.

May be me but can't tell when it has finished charging when it's switched off as there is no indication.
