HP Mini 210-1085 Netbook

 

We've been covering netbooks consistently this past month, and its about time we look at one of the bigger names in this clustered market, and that is HP. Their Mini series is almost genre defining for the realm of small ultraportable and efficient...

Benchmarks analysis and verdict The Price tag of Rs. 19,990 cannot be called a reasonable one, with performance that is not far away from the norm of a N450 processor. Some readings came below average too. All CPU heavy tasks are done in pretty much...

Entry-level entertainer. Sleek and elegant looking, but is it any ...

refined elegance, sturdy build, pretty good keyboard, quality speakers, useful webcam

mediocre performance, miserable vertical viewing angles, intense heating up, scanty interfaces and their unfortunate layout

The input devices, the keyboard and the touchpad, are quite sensible and user-friendly

HP Pavilion dm1z

 

Netbooks, having enjoyed so much excitement during their early days, have now retreated for the most part from the public eye. Part of the reason is likely the rise in tablets, and now Ultrabooks, but netbooks themselves are also partially responsible....

Attractive design ; Large keyboard and touchpad ; Sharp display with decent black levels ; Good audio quality ; Long battery life ; Admirable graphics performance

Annoying Norton antivirus ; Poor processor performance ; Still too small for some users

The HP dm1z is what netbooks originally claimed to be but never were - an affordable and enjoyable Windows PC in a portable package.

HP Mini 210-2000

 

The HP Mini 210-2000 is a competent netbook that may not wow you with bells and whistles, but will get online on the go for hours and hours on end.

Multiple colors choices. Roomy keyboard for a netbook. Nearly 10 hours of battery life

Small touchpad. Average performance

Expert review by:

HP Mini 210-2070nr

 

There's nothing special about the HP Mini 210-2070nr's design or performance, but it'll give you a full day's worth of battery life and comes with a fast hard drive.

Good battery life. Solid feature set. Nice keyboard

Average performance. Uninspired design

HP Mini 210-1199DX

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our 2010 retail laptop and desktop back-to-school roundup , covering specific fixed configurations of popular systems that can be found in retail stores.

Slick design; excellent keyboard and touch pad.

More expensive than comparable Netbooks; bulky battery.

It has one of the best keyboard and touch pad combos we've seen on a 10-inch Netbook, but HP's pink-hued Mini 210 is still a little pricey for what you get.

HP Mini 210 HD Review

 

The Mini 210 HD is the latest netbook from HP, offering a full 720P-compatible 1366x768 resolution on a compact 10.1-inch display. We took an in-depth look at this little laptop to see how well the Mini 210 holds up against the competition and if you...

WXGA resolution 10-inch screen ; Optional GPS, WWAN or Broadcom CrystalHD ; One of the better button-less touchpads

HP Mini 210-1142CL

 

The HP Mini 210-1142CL is an affordable, battery-efficient netbook, and it's available at Costco with a two-year warranty.

Speedy hard drive. New Intel Atom platform runs on DDR3 memory. Big battery included. Outstanding battery scores. Aggressively priced. Nice keyboard. two-year warranty

Erratic click touchpad. Memory slots not easily accessible. Tired plastic look

HP Mini 210 HD Edition

 

HP's Mini 210 should be boring. Like the Ford Fiesta of the PC world, it's a point-A-to-B budget box from a well-known manufacturer not particularly well known for taking risks. But also like its automotive doppelganger, the Mini 210 yields some...

Large, high-resolution screen ; Stylish design with fingerprint-defying finish materials ; Excellent build quality ; Broadcom chip tears through downloaded video up to 720p ; Clean, uncluttered keyboard

Atrocious touchpad ; Preinstalled trialware and junk ; QuickWeb feature borders on worthless ; Less than snappy around the desktop ; Extended battery jiggles in place ; No HDMI output

HP's Mini 210 wows with smooth lines, soft curves and an ultra-sharp screen, but offers a touchpad so astoundingly foul that simple navigation becomes a challenge.

Product Specifications

HP innovation is most visible in its breakthrough notebook PC designs that truly integrate fashion and technology for today's mobile, digital lifestyle. High-gloss HP Imprint finish encases the elegant, curvilinear form and is more durable than traditional painted surfaces. It features a subtle HP-exclusive Radiance pattern that captures the emerging trend towards ornamental design. Building on the original design of concentric waves, Radiance is an ornate mixture of ripples on a sea of radial lines speaking to the fluid way we've come to live and connect. Encouraging more direct interaction, the backlit media control panel responds to the touch or sweep of a finger. HP QuickPlay provides access to DVDs, videos, photos, music, karaoke, streamed or recorded TV - and now games - at the touch of a button. Watch DVD movies on the full screen using simple media controls. Add music to your slide shows or videos with drag-and-drop functionality. Stream, watch live and record TV. Throw an impromptu karaoke party or play preinstalled games from leading brands. It's time to play! For those who want advanced digital entertainment capability coupled with leading-edge mobile performance and communication features, the HP Pavilion dv6600 series Entertainment Notebook PC delivers!
