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

 

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
